"I really love taking online courses, you can learn about anything and it's affordable and convenient. The thing is that sometimes things get slow and then you break your groove, so a good fast browser like Brave is necessary"

    "Wikipedia is a great encyclopedic research aid. It's also now more accepted than when I first started using it and can be a resource in school papers and things."

    "A decent encyclopedia app, I'll give them that, but the title of the app says it all. Dinosaurs and for kids. Other people will have fun to a certain extent but eventually you'll realize you're not eight years old and dinosaurs aren't very fun to learn about after a while. Would like to see a more expansive encyclopedia."

    "While this is an encyclopedia app, it leaves much to be desired. This one is targets kids that want to learn about dinosaurs. So it will at least be useless to you if you want to learn about anything other than dinosaurs."
