Today’s student is using more than just textbooks to comprehend what’s covered in their courses. Curriculums often include articles, slides, compendiums and other forms of content that students get from both professors and classmates over the entire semester.
But it doesn’t stop there. Students often search for (and find) their own content on the internet—things like free books, images and articles—to supplement the content covered in their curriculum. And oftentimes it’s better and easier to comprehend. But keeping it all organized is another story! Not to worry—Lix is here to help!
Introducing My Files, students studying with Lix can now upload their own content—things like PDFs—without ever leaving the app. This way, they can stay organized all semester long! Let’s take a quick look at how My Files is helping to make studying easier (and way more fun).

So, you’re struggling to understand your textbooks? You’re not alone.

But wait…maybe you’ve found some supplementary reading material that better explains those hard-to-understand topics from your textbooks. Instead of misplacing that ‘must-have’ doc, upload it to Lix so you’ll never lose it!
