I can't find a proper description of how you configure the number of courses appearing in My Courses for logged on users. I note this panel:
'Show course categories' allows me to switch on or off Course Categories (note: on its own this does nothing if the user is enrolled in 1 or more courses);
except that 'Show all courses' allows me to force showing a 'Courses' nav tab for everyone(which will then be categorised if the one above is ticked too);
and 'Course limit' which allows me to limit to the number of courses shown before the all courses link cuts in (but this applies only in the case where 'Show all courses' above is ticked.
So, in the case where I select:
No, Yes, 5, I get....
The problem here is that the user expands 'My courses' and sees themselves as enrolled on 5 courses which is completely misleading. Whilst setting this to a very large number makes a mockery of easy navigation! The missing item is 'View all my courses and categories'! If this option doesn't exist then what about 'My course categories' instead? And if that isn't possible, what about an option to switch off My courses altogether in sites where users are enrolled on a large number (possibly all) courses?
Or am I missing the point here somewhere?
