    Description

      For students completing a long qualification (e.g. a degree) we like to leave past courses open so that students can review past material.

      This means that users' "My Courses" lists become very long and mostly full of courses they won't access very often. Even so, the "My Courses" list appears to be the favorite navigation tool for students.

      It would be good if users could toggle the visibility/inclusion of each course in their "My Courses" list so that they can customise the contents of that list in a way that is useful to them.

      A simple "Hidden courses" drop-down arrow would provide easy access to the hidden courses.
