What are you searching for?

We’re excited to launch our upgraded Search tool for the OCW website. As always, the search bar is in the upper right corner of the top menu. But there are many improvements under the hood.

For instance, start typing and you’ll now see “autocomplete” suggestions. If you like one of them, click it to go straight to the result.

Here’s the first few results for “games for learning.” Note that the results default to show entire courses that match the search string. You can also broaden the search to include all types of files plus entire courses, or filter results to just PDFs, or just assessment content (assignments + exams + projects).

If you’re an educator, use this search to find courses and teaching materials on a particular topic, and then click the Instructor Insights tab to learn more about how MIT instructors teach on this topic.

The more you use it, the better it will get! We hope you’ll give the new site Search tool a try, and please do let us know how it’s working for you.
