Dorothy Minor's insight:

InstaGok is excellent. Students can store their searches for all their classes, share the information with others, and keep a journal of notes. InstaGrok is useful for academic research and personal research. Users have a choice of the free version and the paid version. The paid version is useful for teachers in elementary, middle, and high school. College professors can use the free version unless they want more control over what the students are viewing. InstaGrok is very much worth your time.
