You can use the search field (in the upper-right corner of the iTunes window) to quickly locate content in your iTunes U site. When you search for content within your iTunes U site, iTunes U displays results that contain the text you entered based on matches within specific fields, including page name, group name, track title, artist name, album name, comments, lyrics, and course descriptions.
To find an item in your iTunes U site:
Log in to iTunes U as a user with at least download access.
Click the search field and type the text you want to find.
Press the Return key.
In the top half of the Search Results window, iTunes U displays up to four unique iTunes U pages that contain the most relevant matches to the text you entered (for example, a track title match has a higher relevance than an information field match). Clicking a page in the Search Results window displays the Welcome page or Course page with the first tab selected.
In the track list area of the Search Results window, iTunes U displays the items that contain the text you entered, sorted by relevance.
To view comments matching the search results for the Comment column, make sure iTunes is displaying the Comment column (choose View > View Options).
To see all your items again, click the Back button at the top of the iTunes Store window.
For MPEG-4 files, you can also search on keyword, description, and information fields. iTunes sets the information field when a user edits the Grouping field in the iTunes Get Info page for an MPEG-4 file. For ID3-compliant files, you can also search on the TIT1 and TIT3 fields. iTunes sets the ID3 TIT1 field when a user edits the Grouping field in the iTunes Get Info page for an ID3-compliant file.
To add additional keywords for iTunes U to search:
Control-click the track where you want to add keywords, then choose Get Info from the shortcut menu that appears.
Click the Info tab.
Add keywords to the Grouping field.
When searching for content in your iTunes U site, after a track title, keywords in the Grouping field have the second-highest matching relevance.
