Here’s a handy simple block that gives you a quick search option for finding courses via a block. The block is for Moodle 2.0 and up (through 2.6). According to the maintainer,

Post Pages - Post Inline - WIRIS

This block displays a search box on the page…[and] searches through Courses.  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.

Could be handy if you don’t want to open a new window or navigate using the admin panel (or are sick of the extra page loads and clicking.
