Searching for Content
Learners can search for content in Mastery Profiles, Modules, Topics, Concepts, and all of their associated Knowledge Cards.
This makes it easy to find all of the information related to a specific topic or containing a certain word or phrase.
From the results page, learners can view Knowledge Cards, engage in practice, or drill in to specific levels.
OttoLearn's search functionality is fairly exact, especially when it comes to searching for multilingual content. For example, stemming — finding content that appears anywhere within an item name, not just at the start — is currently only available in English.
You can use the following syntax rules to refine your search.
ProTip: To perform an even more specific search, you can use a combination of these rules.
|+||Search for A AND B|
|For example, if you search for password + managers, you will only see results that contain both words.|
||||Search for A OR B|
|For example, if you search for password | managers, you will see results that contain either word.|
|-||Search for A and NOT B|
|For example, if you search for password + -encryption, you will see results that contain "password" and do not contain "encryption".|
As you can see, you will need to include a + between the word(s) you want to include and the word(s) you don't.
|Search for exact phrase|
|For example, if you search for "password encryption", you will see results that contain that exact phrase (both words, in same order).|
|*||Search for variations of a word|
|For example, if you search for pa*, you will see results that contain anything that contains a word starting with "pa".|
