InstaGrok: Educational Search Engine

instaGrok is an intelligent educational search engine that empowers self-directed learning from the Web. instaGrok finds quality educational content on any topic and presents it in an interactive graphical interface, helping learners quickly navigate and make sense of the topic they are interested

instaGrok's sophisticated functionality includes automated filtering (of commercial/inappropriate sites), rating materials by difficulty level, identifying important concepts, displaying key facts, and even generating quiz questions. This is made possible a set of innovative machine learning natural language processing algorithms that set instaGrok apart from other search engines.

Using the search box, type in any term or idea that you are interested in learning about. The results returned are divided into five categories:
  • Overview 
  • Websites 
  • Videos 
  • Q&A 
  • Quizzes 
The results returned are derived algorithmically which means the database is as wide as the internet.
