Block Quick Course List updated for Moodle 2.7 & 2.8

Quick course list is a block for Moodle which allows quick searching of Moodle courses, and displays a link to the course page.

It can be a very helpful block for students to search for a specific course especially if you are having a lot of categories and courses on your moodle site. Now the block is updated for Moodle 2.7 & 2.8.

The quick course list block is very similar to the block quickfind list which allows to search for the users from a block.

Courses that match the search string either by shortname or fullname will be displayed, with a link through to the course page. If Javascript is available, the block will “Find as you type”, otherwise a button will be displayed to submit the search.

You can configure the block to search the course names in the Course full name as well as course short name from the settings page of the block (Site Administration > Plugins > Blocks > Quick Course List). You can also restrict the results by category only, if selected, then courses under the current category will be returned from searches on category pages.
