Five Reasons to Upgrade to instaGrok Classroom

  • Educator Dashboard

    Now you'll have unprecedented insight into your students' research: you can see what they're investigating, how much time they're spending, and what they're writing in their journals. You can also give them Assignments to provide guidance in their research, or review their Bibliography.

  • No advertising

    Teacher and student accounts don't have ads. Period.

  • Safe content

    instaGrok automatically removes profanity and sexual content. In addition, teachers can block controversial sites from being seen by students.

  • Students' privacy

    When your students using your class code, we do not collect their names, emails or any other pesonally-identifiable information. Their journals are also kept private (e.g. not displayed in the instaGrok gallery). Up to 200 students can connect to each teacher. (Librarian accounts enable 800 students to connect.)

  • Premium support

    We always provide teacher with priority support. Just email us at, whenever you have a problem, question or suggestions.
