Productivity

Productivity is the ability to complete tasks in a timely and efficient manner, but with distractions everywhere, a student or working professional might find their productivity levels are not as high as they would like. Many find organising their time and workload to be a challenge and turn to productivity enhancing software for help.

It is not just students who can benefit from productivity software. Teachers and office administrators can also benefit from utilising software such as database management tools to successfully complete tasks and meet deadlines in a timely manner with little stress.

FileMaker is an easy to software which helps users to structure their work in an organised and efficient manner. The programme’s flexibility makes it easy to roll out across school networks and also encourages sustainability though the reduced need for physical paper copies of documents.

One of the most common productivity software types is word processing and PDF editors. Most student work and coursework is completed using a word processor such as Corel Word Perfect and often submitted as a PDF using a PDF editor such as WordShare, ABBY FineReader or Corel. Having reliable versions of each software gives students more time to focus on what matters.

Mind mapping is another key tool used by students and teachers to increase productivity and strengthen learning. Gone are the days of a cloud (not the digital kind) in the centre of a piece of A3 paper, drawn with a set of felt tip pens. Now mind mapping software allows students to create infinite connections and store them remotely to access from home or the classroom. MindManager and Wondershare, EdrawMind are both powerful mind mapping software with accessible functionalities for all students.

School programmes can be unaccommodating for the variety of devices and operating systems being used by today’s students. Some programmes are only available on Windows and others only on certain versions. System mirroring software such as Parallels overcomes this common problem by enabling windows to run seamlessly on Intel, Chrome, Apple Mac and other devices.
