It is a shame that any teaching and learning materials are charged for. The world would be a far better place if people were able to learn for free. Here are a few resources that are still free for students and teachers to use. All seven sites are suitable for students and teachers.

  1. Google Scholar

Despite the fact that it leads to a lot of resources that you have to pay for, it still leads to a great many that you do not have to pay for. If you are a student, you can look at other people’s work to give you a little inspiration. If you are a teacher, the essays you find may give you a new angle from which to teach a subject.

  1. Top10writers

Here you can find some of the best writing services on the Internet. They review them to see which fly and which flop. The op 10 Writers team are also good at telling you which of the essay writing services are frauds and which ones are on the level. It can be tough finding an essay writing service that you can trust, especially when there is so much on the line, which is why a review site like Top10Writers is becoming increasingly more valuable as time goes on.

  1. Wikipedia

You may raise your eyebrows at this entry, but that is unfair. You cannot use it in your essay bibliography, but that doesn’t mean it is not loaded with both good and very valuable information. Even if you cannot add references to Wikipedia into your essays, you may still learn a great many facts and concepts from it.

  1. Skillwise

It is a website run by the BBC, which is a broadcasting company in the UK that they force the people of the UK to pay for. As a result of the masses of money this company gets from the general public, they are able to create different TV shows, radio shows, and websites. The Skillwise website teaches people English and math.

  1. Ted Ed

The TED has numerous speakers about different subjects. Some are good, and some are truly awful. The TED ED system is similar, but they have lessons on certain academic subjects. They may be worth sharing if you are a student and if you are a teacher.

  1. How Stuff Works

Like most websites, this one has a mixed bag of good and bad articles. Just like most news websites, they get the same recognition if the content they produce is true or false, so they often throw any old tot up on their website. Still, how stuff works seems to have a handful of clever authors that write some really interesting and engaging stuff.

  1. Edutopia

This website is more aimed at teachers. It is full of educational blogs and articles. It has information on how to motivate students and videos on teaching and learning. It is good for students if they feel that their teacher is lacking, and/or for students that wish to be teachers one day. There is plenty of good information, and it covers enough educational topics to keep you coming back for more.
