Returns courses that match the criteria given by the query parameters.
Search criteria is documented below. The keyword parameters search the course title or course description for matches and returns courses where matches are found.
While no search terms are necessarily required, it is highly recommended that queries provide as many query parameters as possible to shorten the time of the search and to narrow down the number of results returned. At a minimum, all search queries should specify a year, a term and at least 1 other query parameter listed below.
