6 Types of Educational Apps

There are hundreds of things that people can learn online and dozens of ways they can learn them.

Education Platforms

These are information platforms for students and teachers to interact with one another. They are a place for taking all kinds of courses via distance learning in the most comfortable conditions.

School Applications

Designed to teach one specific discipline, such as mathematics, programming, or foreign languages.

Educational Games

Gamification can make even the most boring assignments interesting and complex tasks simple. These kinds of apps use game rules to achieve educational goals.

Lecture Apps

These allow you to listen to audiobooks, lectures, and podcasts while commuting.

Educational Apps for Kids

These include flashcards for numbers, words, letters, colors, shapes, etc. They help children expand the scope of their knowledge and reinforce what they’ve learned.

Memorization apps

Memorization applications use all modern memorization techniques. The main feature of apps for memorization is visual presentation of the material.

Key Features of Educational Apps

The success of an educational app depends on many factors, including features that increase engagement, conversion, and profit.

The Dashboard

A user’s profile is where they can personalize, customize their settings, and view schedules, statistics about their learning dynamics, and more.

Study Materials Storage

It’s good to be able to revisit previous material at any time to refresh your knowledge or catch up on a missed lesson.


The ability to take notes during interactive lessons means you can save and organize important information using nothing more than your smartphone.

Lesson Menu

The menu allows you to view a list of upcoming lessons and assignments, quickly find your courses and tests, etc. It makes the learning process more organized.

Push Notifications

These allow you to be reminded of upcoming lessons, homework, new materials, updates, etc.

Teacher Feedback

The ability to ask questions as they arise greatly simplifies communication between teachers and students, which is extremely important for online classes.

Offline Content

Not everyone always has a stable Internet connection. The learning application must support the ability to view materials without a network connection.


Knowledge assessment is an integral part of teaching. This way the user will know exactly which chapters, subjects or topics they should pull up.

Monetize Your Educational App

Ideas are worthless if they don't generate income. Even the most revolutionary educational technology app won’t be viable without effective monetization.

In-App Advertising

A fast and easy way to monetize free educational apps. Given a large enough user base, it guarantees a high, steady income. However, there should also not be too many ads, as it can significantly degrade the user experience.

Paid Courses

One of the most obvious options. The app generates income from the sale of copyrighted courses. The user can purchase a course for an indefinite period (for example, while they have the application installed) or use it for a limited time.

Paid Subscription

A subscription which only allows access to the content in the application on a prepaid basis. It works on the following principle: the user downloads the application for free and gets access to some (or even all) of the functions, but only for a certain amount of time.

In-App Purchases

In-purchases are additional content or actual products that you sell within the app.

Trial Access

This allows the user to get acquainted with the full functionality of the app for free for a limited time (for example, 10 days).

1. What is an educational app?

Educational applications are services that simplify the learning process, make it more effective and comfortable, and allow for studying various disciplines remotely. Examples range from apps that teach children math, to entire educational platforms for adults.

2. Why do we use educational apps?

Educational apps can complement classic offline learning or even serve as a respectable alternative, a fact which has been highlighted during the pandemic. Every year these applications become more and more popular because they:

  • Are effective
  • Are available 24/7
  • Are mobile
  • Save time and money
  • Allow for stress-free learning

3. What will make users love your learning app?

Simple Authentication. Give the user the opportunity to register and enter their profile in just one click. For example, by using a social media account.

Good UX/UI Design. The appearance, user flow, and usability of the interface affect user comfort, increase retention, and not to mention - sales.

Schedule. Effective learning requires proper organization. Thanks to the schedule feature, the user will be able to approach their learning process systematically, and dividing material into logical chunks allows for better assimilation of previous material.

Autonomy. The vast majority of applications require a constant Internet connection. The ability to work offline (such as having access to certain content and functions) will expand your user base among those who live in areas with poor mobile network coverage.
