Academit is a free E-learning software for popular programming languages including C, C#, PHP, and XML. It’s an easy to use e-learning program that focuses more on the presentation of the content, rather than just providing you the study material. Academit combines the features of both PowerPoint presentations and PDF documents to offer you the easiest way to understand the basics of these languages.
While presentations provide the simplest ways to explain topics by focusing on the key concepts, PDFs gives the ease of providing detailed explanation on them. Academit utilizes both of these tools and creates an E-learning solution that helps you in understanding things in a better and faster way.
The software consists of four separate language courses, which can be downloaded free of cost using the link given at the end of this article. Since each course has its own download link, you can choose to download only those courses which you require. Every course would install independently, but open through a common interface. Let’s have a look on Academit in detail.
Learn C, C#, PHP, and XML with ease using Academit:
When you launch Academit, you will see a window listing all installed books and courses in your system. Each of these courses has a “View Book” button that opens an e-book on your system with a mouse click.
The book is divided into two panes: the left provides a “Slide View” of the topics and the right pane provides a “Detailed View”.
The entire course is divided into units, which are divided into chapters, and further into topics. You can read the topic summary in bullets on the left and a detailed explanation of it on the right. And if you are tired of constantly staring on the desktop screen, you can use the “Read Page Aloud” tool that works like a Text to Speech Converter and read the page content for you (All the tools are listed on the right side in a separate panel).
Apart from that, you can use the “Search Bar” given at the top to quickly search the desired topic using keywords. And if you are not satisfied, you can use the integrated “Web Search” to find out more results for your query on the web.
Academit also allows you to take quick notes and test your knowledge by taking MCQ tests.
