      Description

      It looks like the course settings menu is more designed for administrators, while teachers use it all the time... and get lost.

      I suggest to reorder them:

      Near the top

      • Turn editing on: should be first, that is what teachers use a lot
      • Question bank: used a lot. At the top please
      • reports (activity completion, course participation) used a lot
      • recycle bin: can be handy in times

      In the middle

      • import: happens occasionally
      • gradebook setup: rare
      • outcomes: would be great if that feature was fully developed
      • badges, for who uses that

      At the end

      • Edit settings: only used on course creation, mostly with default settings if the site is set up well. 
      • Course completion: one time of setting. 
      • Filters: one time setting - hardly changed by teachers. 
      • backup: sysadmin should do that
      • restore: sysadmin should do that
