Meta-Search Software Publisher Launches Grokker E.D.U.
.
Grokker E.D.U. provides an optimized version of Grokker 2.2, the company's award-winning visual search-and-research application that captures content from multiple data sources and presents results in an easy-to-navigate visual map. The platform has been designed to incorporate many different data and information resources relevant to educational settings. The company also announced implementations at a number of school districts and universities, including Stanford University.

Grokker E.D.U. has been designed to support many new research databases, such as WorldCat, Library of Congress, HighWire Press, and others. Groxis plans to release these research-ready plug-ins for Grokker E.D.U. soon after the launch, and continuing throughout the upcoming year. Grokker E.D.U. also provides customized features, such as a bibliography generator, a list maker, and map and text exporting capabilities.

The Stanford implementation provides the Grokker platform to all students, faculty and staff, giving them a single point of access to Socrates, the Stanford Library information system; HighWire Press; Academic Search Premier; Expanded Academic; the Library of Congress; and seven internet search engines. The platform’s cross search feature allows users to create a single query from any combination of these information sources and returns a visual map containing results from all selected sources.

“Grokker E.D.U. is adaptable to fit the specific needs of the educational institution and the student,” said Pittman. “Our approach is to deliver what is needed, how it is needed, and as we continue gaining momentum in the education market, we will be delivering a growing library of information sources to meet the needs of educators and students worldwide.”
