October 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

If there’s one thing you’ll surely befriend as an online degree student, it is technology. With the option to choose from several affordable online schools, many students are opting to acquire their degrees via the virtual route, and doing so requires extensive use of telecommunication devices and technological gadgets.

We present here our selection of the top five gadgets that will come in handy for any online student.

1. Laptop

A laptop offers many benefits for online students that make it a worthy investment. Students who have to travel a lot for their jobs may have to carry around their assignments with them, and a laptop affords that possibility quite conveniently. Besides, being battery-powered, these machines can be used even if a power supply is not readily available, such while waiting for your turn at the dentists’.

2. External Hard Drive

External hard drives are extremely useful when you have to keep a back-up of large amounts of data, or even when you have to carry around a lot of data to use on another computer system. Memory space these days can be as much as 1TB. Because online students store most of their course material and readings in a softcopy, an external hard drive comes in quite useful for saving the several bytes of data.

3. Headsets and Microphones

Many online degree programs require students to attend a certain number of hours of virtual classroom sessions. To interact with peers and tutors during such sessions, headphones and microphones are a must. At times students may hold group study sessions on Skype, and will need the devices for that. Or they may just need to listen to a lecture that has been sent on a DVD.

4. E-reader

E-readers are devices that allow you to read digital books, and other reading material that is available online. With enhanced readability and greater battery-life features, these e-readers can be a blessing for online students who have to peruse through various papers and books but don’t want to either print everything or read over a bulky laptop or mini-screen of a smart phone.

5. Smart Phones

The iPod didn’t get so popular for nothing. It is user-friendly, convenient and helps you stay connected on the go. Other smart phones also come in quite helpful as you can access the internet through them whenever you want to, connect with peers online, and even use them when you need the meaning to something right there and then.

These gadgets can be quite a blessing if you are pursuing your degree online. Make sure you get your hands on as many as you can to make your online learning experience more smooth and fulfilling.
