      Description

      Please add the ability for teachers and students to disable course images in the Moodle 3.5 dashboard, or revert to the legacy course overview block.  This would allow those users who wish to disable this feature the ability to do so.  Teachers with a large number of courses may especially may want to do this in order maximize the amount of useful information on their dashboard.
