Brainly is very helpful for all grade-level subjects. There are multiple tutors that provide thoughtful, detailed responses quickly, as well as moderators that ensure answer quality. Questions that are above high school level have slightly slower response times.

Kezia Happy found Brainly:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    For problems, Brainly allows access to both answers as well as detailed explanations.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Brainly is student-supported. Students answer questions and receive points. With these points, students can ask their own questions. There are incentives to answer correctly as well as moderators (often students as well) that ensure answer quality.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Students can ask about questions or concepts they are struggling with. This helps to lessen the load of educators.

I would rate it a 9. As a student, I understand how important it is to ask questions and get answers to understand subjects that I am struggling on. Brainly proves to be a terrific resource where I can find help on concepts in many different areas. I wouldn't rate it a 10 as there can be some improvements. The whole "game" systematic where you gain points and give "brainliests" can be more emphasized in my opinion. I also think (although it is not the site's fault one bit) that there can be someway to stop spam answers, maybe like a pre-post answering check bot.

Bill Hughes found Brainly:
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    I myself have learned many things on Brainly, especially in mathematics like Integrals and Applications of Derivatives. I also believe that the answering team does a terrific job trying to explain concepts and making others gain knowledge on the specific subject.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    The site is used by students to gain help and some students take part by helping answer these students' answers. I would coin this "student collaboration" as we students are helping other students understand concepts and schoolwork.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    I don't really have any examples of impact on teacher workload. Teachers' workload depends on what subject they are teaching and how they teach it. Brainly is a supplement where students ask questions if they do not understand. I do not think Brainly impacts teacher workload much if at all.

I often recommend my peers and teachers to Brainly. Once you join, you'll feel a sense of community, and have a desire to help as many people as you possibly can. I want anyone that wants to help or get help to join Brainly, and that's why I recommend it to so many people.

Luke Graham found Brainly:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Brainly is a huge learning community with hundreds of questions answered each day. The cool thing about Brainly is that all answers are stored on the site, and can easily be searched for by question. Sometimes, I just search up random questions from different subjects to gain knowledge.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    This is one of the main features of Brainly. Brainly is not just a QA site, it's a community. A community where students, parents, and teachers share their knowledge with each other. I think this sentence provided by them really sums it up: "Nobody knows everything, but everybody knows something".
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Before joining Brainly, I would have complex explanations that weren't really to the point. Now, within minutes of asking a question, I can get a simple yet thorough explanation, which is much easier for teachers to review than a jumbled explanation.
