      Description

      Since the possibility for the single user to affect how courses are sorted have disappeared with v 3.3, better admin control is needed.

      Different sites uses different syntaxes for naming their courses.

      For instance, when sorting by name and having the year/semester for the course in the start of the name, they will be sorted with the latest courses showing last in the list, perhaps pages away. 

      Two more quite simple admin settings would make this much configureable:

      • Order by course start date
      • Ascending/Descending, which would affect whatever sorting method you choose

      Also, it would be great to be able to mark courses as "favourites", since "courses" not always are courses but more like ongoing project rooms or communications rooms without regular start/end dates.
