Ultra course list searching

    We are using the Ultra UI at our institution. I have a couple of suggestions regarding the searching and filtering options.

     

    It's not clear what the Search actually includes: it doesn't include the name of the lecturer(s), the contents of the description, or the course area or the discipline, which are all reasonable things to expect.

     

    The search field and filter should probably be reset when the page is reloaded or a subject is entered - at the moment, it persists across page loads and even login sessions, apparently using a server-side user variable. As it stands, it could easily cause confusion if a student or lecturer searches for something and forgets that they've done so - next time they go to the subjects list, they'll only find the subject that they searched for, possibly days ago, and may not notice that there's still text in the Search box, so they'll wonder why they can't find their other subjects. An alternative would be to animate the search field when there's something in it to draw attention to it.
