      Description

      The current registration process is known to be confusing. People don't know Mooch and don't understand that it is in fact the Moodle.org registration that allow to get security information by email or to get listed on Moodle.org if desired.

      The idea to mention Mooch was to make admins aware of its existence. And so it would encourage teachers to share their course with the community (if capability enabled).

      I suggest the following improvements:
      1- when the admin click on Admin > Registration, the page displays the registration form. The admin changes the fields if he wants then click the Register button. A new admin page is displayed saying that the registration is successful.
      2- move "register on specific hub" button on a different page. For example it could be Admin > Courses > Register on a hub. On this page, as a reminder, we can detect if the site is not registered to Moodle.org and indicated: "To publish on MOOCH you must first register on Moodle.org" - being a link to the registration form page.
      3- on the "Add a course" page, we should add a button 'Add a existing course from a hub'.
      4- in the Admin > Notification we should always remind admin when the site is not registered on Moodle.org.
