      Description

      If the upcoming events block is displayed on the front page, then every course-related event (module event, group event, course event) in the block should contain the name of the relevant course, and a link to the course page.

      Also, if these events are displayed in the Moodle calendar, at least in the daily view, the name of the course and a link to it should be visible. (This is currently not the case for group events.)

      This is useful since events often have very generic names ("Lecture", "Seminar", "Assignment 3") and when they are displayed out of the context of the course they're in, it's helpful to see the course name.
