      Description

      The course block always sorts the list of courses by name. It would be useful to also be able to sort by course start date. This would enable older courses (typically ones that have finished but are still being kept available for reference) to be pushed down the list.

        I think it might then be more sensible to write this an optional block for comment.

        I'll put something together
