There are so many things considered essential for university life nowadays, and an iPad is considered one of them by many students. iPads in the classroom are a common sight being used by both students and teachers to keep themselves up to date. But how does your iPad help you to plan a better university Life?
Here are a few tips on how to use your iPad effectively when planning life at University:
Schedule your events all in one place
It is easier to have all of your knowledge in one place, and scheduling your events on the iPad couldn’t be easier. Add events such as deadlines, lectures and exams onto your calendar and you will automatically be reminded ahead of time. You can also use it to schedule your study time, factoring in breaks and allocating time to different subjects so you know you are making the most of your time.
It can be difficult to stay on top of a heavy workload, so creating checklists is another helpful way you can use your iPad. Planning what you need to do and putting them in priority order is really easy and you can use the inbuilt services or download apps specifically for what you need. The best thing about checklists though is when you tick off your tasks one by one.
Although it may not always be easy to write extensive notes using a touch screen, you can use your iPad to make quick and short notes whenever you need to. As the iPad is light and portable, it is easy to keep it in your bag and take it out when you need it.
If you need to make more substantial notes or even use it to work while on the go, you can get a compatible keyboard which turns your iPad into a mini laptop of sorts. There are bluetooth keyboards which are easy to use but do require charging, or you can find one to plug indirectly into the Lightning port. You might even find it easier to use your iPad for all your work and leave behind the laptop altogether.
Manage your finances
Using your iPad can help you keep track of all aspects of your life, not to mention your finances. There are many different apps and tools you can use to manage your finances and keep you on the right track. This can be especially useful if you are not used to making your own financial decisions and are new to living away from home.
Budgeting can be hard especially when you are on a tight income. Using your iPad, you can track your income and outgoings, schedule payments so you know your fees and necessities are paid on time. It can also help you with simple things such as budgeting your weekly shop, making shopping lists and even simple recipes too.
Have fun in your downtime
Your iPad doesn’t just have to be used for work. You can download fun games or interesting apps to use when you are not studying or working. Social media apps are great but should be limited, so if you think they might become too addictive for you, keep them off your iPad and use them elsewhere. But sometimes they can be a welcome distraction for a few moments here and there.
How will you use an iPad to plan your university life?
As you can see there are plenty of ways using an iPad in university or college can make your life easier. From keeping notes, planning your schedule to managing your finances and just having fun, an iPad is an excellent device to use while in university.
