Earlier, assignments, essays, thesis reports, and other writing projects are sent to professors as hard copies. But as technology advances, teachers required students to submit their projects through email. Many educational establishments around the world use this process to save time and resources.
Email is efficient for both the students and the teachers because:
- Students do not have to print their projects.
- Teachers can easily check plagiarized essays.
- Teachers can access the projects anywhere, whenever they want.
- Students can submit projects where ever they are.
- Grades become confidential.
That is why, it is very important that students keep their online mails easy to use. To make your email a valuable educational instrument, here are helpful email management apps that students should try.
