Apropos is a collaborative search activity that has been built to ensure students and teachers can seamlessly blend technology into their classroom lessons.
With Apropos, educators engage their classes with visually rich, problem based, standards aligned activities that inform assignments, augment lesson plans and make online inquiry simple and available on demand. Educational programs gain a collaborative activity tool that enlivens the curriculum and leverages IT investments.
Apropos incorporates collaborative search, discovery and curation of materials in ANY curriculum, supporting ANY standard, using its innovative and easily extended activities. Using ANY search engine, ANY content repository or ANY web site, learners and educators assign, find and incorporate Apropos on any device. Learners share, take notes, vote and comment on others' submissions directly within the activity. Educators create their own prompts, choose from the instructional activities or modify the activities.
With regard to data privacy, Apropos does not collect or share any Personally Identifying Information about students. We use aggregate and anonymous data from all users to learn about the performance and efficacy of our product, but we do not share data with any third party beyond our customers.
Apropos is a cloud-based, HTML5 web application with separate interfaces for educators and learners. We have built the solution to support teaching and learning as a standalone application and to deploy as an integrated tool on platforms such as Learning Management Systems. Our RESTful API-driven architecture supports this integration as does our Learning Tools Interoperability compliance.
