Global Search will enable you to Moodle it, rather than Google it!

The Global Search feature lets you search for content on Moodle that you have permission to access.

You can search for your modules, activity information and some activity content including; forum posts, Moodle book chapters, glossary entries or collaborative wikis pages.

You can also use this feature to search for content in uploaded files, such as lecture notes or presentations.
