From the beginning, a big part of our mission has been to help you through your learning journey so that you can grow both personally and professionally.

With over 40,000 different learning resources (and growing) inside of Sunlight, there are a lot of places that journey can take you. Thankfully, you can always search to find the ones most relevant to you. Here's how...

1. Click on “Search” in the sidebar

This will display the search modal (4th button in the sidebar), containing the search term field (where you can type in your search term) and the search result preview. 

2. Type in your search term 

You'll notice that as you type, results will show in real time below for resources, playlists, people and companies. 

3. View all results

If what you're looking for doesn't immediately show in the search preview, simply press enter in the search field to view all results. You can also click on each of the respective categories (resources, playlists, people and companies) to view all results within that category.

Filtering and browsing all results

If you're searching for resources or playlists, chances are your search will have a lot of results. Thankfully you can filter the search so that it caters to your needs in a better way.

When you filter, you have several different options. You can sort by relevance, type, price, provider, among others. You can then decide if you want a book or an online course, or any other type of resource which might pique your interest. We also have the options to select the resources purchased by friends or recommended to you.

You can tick as many boxes as you want, to make your search as narrow or wide as you wish 

Once your search is as narrow or wide as you wish, you can directly request any resource or make a playlist out of your findings. We wish to offer you a universe of possibilities, which is now yours to decide how to use.
