Free Cloud based, collaborative, research tools empower students to write better papers faster.
Boulder, CO June 10, 2011 – Gone are the days of stacks of photocopied pages and hastily scribbled note cards. Today students do their research on the Internet. CoKnown provides the tools necessary for efficient and collaborative online research. The Research Toolbar makes saving information fast and thorough. While Project organization tools handle even the most demanding research projects. Cloud based software enables students to collaborate on Projects. And everything is accessible on any Internet connected device. This level of organization and accessibility makes peer and/or professor review a snap.
CoKnown Research Toolbar for Firefox
The Research Toolbar allows students to crop webpages and add a title, note and quote as they save their smart bookmarks (SmartMarks) to their Project. The Toolbar’s Project menu allows students to quickly switch between Projects. Their browsing history is automatically saved to the Project. Inline histories are displayed between SmartMarks for fast backtracking.
More about The Research Toolbar
Cloud based Collaboration
Students can add others (CoSearchers) at anytime. These CoSearchers will then see the Project in their Toolbar and on their Project List page. The owner of the Project sets the CoSearchers’ permission level. With Full permission a CoSearcher can do anything the Project’s owner can do. CoKnown automatically keeps track of who added what to the Project.
More about Collaboration
Students can have an unlimited number of Projects and archive them when they’re finished. Projects are automatically organized in chronological order with Inline Histories. Cropped webpages are also viewable inline. Custom Lists further organize with drag & drop sorting. Projects can also be interconnected to create Semantic webs of knowledge.

Notes & Writing Tools
Noteboxes can be added anywhere within a Project. They are unlimited in length, have a full text editor and spell checking. This allows students to write within the context of their SmartMarks and add additional notes. They can then assemble these chunks into a final format within Conclusion boxes.
Peer and/or Professor Review
Because everything on a Project is organized in a concise visual layout progress reviews are extremely quick. Sources, content, notes, and timestamps are all available at a glance.
With CoKnown research is fast, thorough, organized and collaborative. Welcome to Social Researching!
