Our catalog's search tools are intended to help you navigate thousands of courses and find the best available match as quickly and easily as possible. The first tool you'll notice is the recommendations panel that appears at the top of your results.
If you enter a term in the “Search courses” bar at top left, you will see three recommendation areas appear—"Curated Lists for You," "Popular Courses for You," and "New Courses for You":
If there are any Curated Lists relevant to your topic, the first panel will show them. These Lists provide pre-made learning paths built by our Curation specialists. The next panel suggests popular courses. Our algorithm takes factors like ratings and usage into account when determining popularity. The third panel displays new and recently updated courses. Underneath these, you will find all other relevant results.
Please note that the catalog’s "Sort By" menu at upper right must use the default, “Relevancy,” to generate these recommendations.
