The search does work well. Teachers, for the most part, are more used to navigating folders and seeing files. Our instructors tend to deal with ten's and sometimes hundreds of files during a given semester. Much easier to organize files in a file cabinet then it is to search your own bucket when you can't remember the file name or data-within.
Anyway, we are very excited to see the browse by navigation in place here at the university. It looks like we are very close to completing the integration. Thank you Dan and the rest of the Moodle team!!!
