      Description

      Martin has said that he'd like the start and end dates removed from the courses in the overview block. Martin, Al and I had a quick discussion about it and we agreed that it is reasonable to remove them as they don't offer that much value (and seem to be confusing people).

      The course start and end dates appear on the course elements in both the "Courses" tab and "sort by courses" view in the timeline tab. We only need to remove them from the templates, it's fine to still have them returned by the web services.
