      Description

      There has been a bit of feedback that it's still not clear enough that hiding courses in the overview block is hiding it only for that user's view in their overview block.

      This is particularly confusing for teachers which also have the ability to hide courses from students.

      We should try to improve the terminology to make this exceptionally clear.

      Przemek Kaszubski had a good suggestion in their comment here on the original issue.

      Description edited to provide an update:

      Various alternative wordings were suggested in the issue comments, with the following being agreed on:

      'Hide from view' - 'Remove from view'
      'All (except hidden)' - 'All (except removed from view)'
      'Hidden' - 'Removed from view'
      'Show this course' - 'Restore to view'
