Global Search is Here At Last

cle global search barWe’ve been asking for it, and finally we have it. The ability to perform a global, keyword search for courses and content in the CLE is now possible! This is a new feature that became available after we updated the CLE on July 1. A search can be started from any page in the CLE, using the magnifying glass icon that is found on the top-most navigation bar. Results can include courses, course resources and activities, and even text within forum posts.

To start a new search:

  1. Hover over the magnifying glass found in the top-right of any page, and type a keyword.
  2. Press the RETURN key on your keyboard to begin the search.
  3. Browse the results, and click the title (in bold) of a result to open its page.

Note: Search results are limited to the content that you have access to. Another words, you will only see results from courses that you are enrolled in.
