AMPlified Search #AMPlified Search for Google

The AMPS extension is an prototype extension for Google Chrome that amplifies search results by identifying learning resources by adding available standards alignment data and usage information found in Learning Registry.

Installing the binary form is the quickest way to try out. Be warned, this is a prototype. The services backing this plugin may become temporarily unavailable or cease to exist in the future, however, we will make every effort to maintain them as long as we can. If for some reason we must terminate support, the control box will indicate that the plugin has expired, and you should uninstall it at that point.
