The EducationProgram extension currently adds a user preference under the "Misc" tab:
- Show a link to your courses at the top of every page.
I think this user preference can probably be safely removed. I think it should be possible to quickly and easily check whether a user is currently enrolled in a course and, if so, output the "my courses" tab.
An alternate approach would be to move this user preference under the "Appearance" user preferences tab.
