You are NOT the product
We are the product. We don’t sell your personal data. We don’t manipulate search results to sell you something. To earn money, we offer premium plans where some members pay an annual fee and receive additional options compared to the free plan.
It’s not always easy to spot fake-news and inappropriate content. Our technology filters them out to provide you with trustworthy and safe learning resources.
Videos, MOOCs, podcasts, apps, books, ebooks, trainings, safety sheets, career profiles, courses, degrees, we collect them all and, in the light, we bring them to you.
Our indexing & data wrangling technology uses the latest advances in NLP and Machine Learning to sort and highlight the best educational contents on any topic.
We filter out all the irrelevant & inappropriate contents, and any other fake news to provide you with only the best quality of content to your learners or students.
Accessing the right learning resources shouldn’t be so hard. Want to see our data directly in MS Teams or Moodle? No problem, our plugins and APIs make it easy to connect to every LMS out there.
Frequently Asked Questions
I need more, do you have other products?
Yes we do! We offer two additional products depending your use case:
- If you are a teacher, a professional educator, or a learning designer you may be interested by Inokufu Studio. Inokufu Studio is an expert curation tool to search for learning objects that match very specific criteria such as age range, bloom objectives, difficulty level, length, format, price, etc.
- If you are a developer, you’ll be interested in Inokufu APIs. These APIs enable programmatic access to our search technology and many others education-related-services.
Are you a true search engine?
Yes we are. Similarly to Google or Bing, we have our own search index. We are still at the beginning of this journey, but we have already indexed 3M+ Learning objects. This index is growing fast (x4-5/y) and we are planning to reach 250M+ within the next 2 years, as our indexing technology scales. In some specific cases, our search engine is also directly integrated with third party API such as stack overflow or Wikipedia. This enables us you to offer you search results from 8M+ Wikipedia articles and from 22M+ stack overflow questions.
What is Inokufu Studio?
If you would like to get a feel for how Inokufu Search technology works without building a whole application, we also provide a webapp called Inokufu Studio. In addition to providing a convenient user interface to test queries, Inokufu Studio allows you to test the API’s URL and query parameters, such as type and Bloom filters. If you are interested, contact us.
Do you have an API?
Can I customize my query to tune results?
Yes, that’s the whole point of Inokufu search technology! There are a number of required and optional parameters you can use to customize your queries in order to return the most relevant results. These parameters can be specified using URL query parameters or as options when building your application with one of our client side libraries or plugins. The parameters allow you to filter results by type, bloom objectives, provider and much more. Check out the API documentations for more information on available features.
Can I have a demo?
Sure! Send us an email at email@example.com, we will schedule a demo with one of our experts.
Who is the team behind Inokufu?
We are a french team based in a beautiful city called Lyon, just hours from the French Alps! You can read more about us on our About page. 🤗
How can I support?
The best way to help us and support our mission is to buy a premium search account here. You can even share your premium account with other people, from family, team or even with people in needs. These subscriptions help us pay the hefty costs associated to developing our own search technology and building our own index of learning resources. We also greatly welcome any feedback you have, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I invest?
Yes you can. Up to this stage, we were self-funded and privately-owned. Things will change in 2022, as we are now opening to external investors. So if you want to join our mission to change the way learners and teachers search for learning contents, get in touch with our CEO here.
