      Description

      When there isn't anything more to view, the course overview block still has a 'View more' button in grey. The text and button suggest that it is clickable when it isn't. This is distracting and confusing. How about just not showing the button?

      Similarly, when an activity or resource is not available, text is displayed in grey such as 'Add submission' or 'View'. The text suggests a clickable link. Again this is distracting and confusing and it would be better to not show any text for activities which are not available.
