    Description

      When linking "child" courses to a "parent" course, the Course meta link "Link course" drop-down selection box should give the teacher or administrator the option of sorting the list of courses. Currently the course list appears to be in category order with the most recently created course listed first. Schools with large number of courses would like to be able to sort that list in some logical order, for example, alphabetically in course order. Perhaps a site wide setting could be implemented.
