Trello: The Perfect Study Tool

Let me guess, you're sitting at home, thinking about how your study just isn't going anywhere, you're stuck in a complete rut and you don't know how to keep on top of all of the work. Well, worry no more! There's a brilliant app called Trello that can help you all of that and more.

We here at Studyclix love and use it too! It's the perfect (and free!) tool for staying organised and mapping out what work you need to do. In the following blog, we want to show you how it can make your studying and learning a whole lot easier.

Trello - What is it?

For those of you who have never used it before, Trello is a web application that lets you organise anything - projects, homework, shopping lists - whatever you need! It gives you a clear and interactive overview of what is being worked on and you can monitor your progress on it, helping you keep on top of all your various pieces of work.

Look at it like sticky notes on a white board, you move each sticky note to a different column once you've finished the task on the note, and your productivity levels feel like they're at 110%. Trello is exactly the same, but just wastes less paper! 😃👍


You can use Trello by creating different boards. The beauty of it is that you can choose to organise and create your own boards in whatever way you like. So, for example, let's say you want to have one board for homework, one for a personal to do list, one for English, one for Irish, etc. The choice is yours.

Below is an example I made for a "Homework" board:

not only is it clear and organised, it's SO satisfying to see your work progress through the board and to move one card (the task) into the "done" list, trust me. Watch how it's done:

Studyclix and keeping track of your study

Like I mentioned though, the sky is the limit with what you can create!

You can use it to study in conjunction with Studyclix; set up a board for a subject, with a card for every topic to study. Once you've studied and revised it on Studyclix, tick it off your list on Trello for that feeling of accomplishment and to keep track of where you're at.

Honestly though, you can go whatever way you like with this. I've linked a sample template for a Trello study board for general study here that you can have a look at and base yours off.                                                                                      

Otherwise, you can sign up here and get creating!

Best of luck with the study,
