      Description

      The reporting options (Logs, Live Logs, Activity report, Course participation, Activity completion) are centralized (although buried) in the Navigation block -> My courses -> 'Coursename' -> Reports. This placement is unintuitive when looking for data on a course, activity or for a particular participant. This will be especially troublesome if the Navigation block is not populated by default in the course. Who will think to add a Navigation block to see logs of course activity?

      Is there any dialog which reasons why Reports found in 1.9 in the Administration block was removed from the list in the current 2.2 Settings -> Course administration? This new placement would not only be consistent for users migrating from 1.9 to 2.x, but also a more logical location for dealing with course management.
