Hi Kirill,
Here's some feedback for you:

I just registered for InstaGrok and had a bit of a play. Firstly, I searched for materials related to fertilizers and waterways for a colleague and secondly I looked for material related to globalization and business for a class I am preparing. Anyway, I found the system really easy to use; the interface, while not exactly flash, is very easy to understand and use, and I really liked the range of options across the top. However, for most of the material, I found only college or advanced level courses - certainly nothing that I could use with classes below Year 10 or so. I don't know if there will be other materials that become available or not.

Another thing that I thought might be useful would be a section in the top that caters to lesson plans or something similar.

Other than that, keep up the great work! I'll be mentioning InstaGrok to some of my colleagues.
