Is there technology that can help students in self-directed learning?

There is no one tool that works for everyone.
Have you researched Khan Academy?

There are a variety of technologies and systems for self-directed learning - everything from apps to web sites to audio tapes to books and more. Each is aimed at slightly different styles of learners.
If you google "types of learners", you will see different theories showing that there are at least 3 different types of learners. Some learn by seeing, some by doing, some by hearing, etc. Different tools focus on different styles, where some try to focus on all ways. In the end, different tools work for different styles, and one challenge is finding the tool that works for the specific person. And likely, there are some people that no self-directed learning will be good enough - which is why in-class learning still is a big thing.
