Hi, I've noticed a bug that effects the "Recently worked on courses" feature. I love the idea of keeping track of your most recent courses, but when I'm working on a course and eventually wrap up for the day or simply close the course to return to the homescreen or progress section, the course that I was just working on will be permanently deleted from the "My courses" feature. I cannot even re-add it.
At this point, even though I work Classical Mechanics, Multivariable Calc, and Linear Alg. practically every day, I only have 3 recent courses that show in "My courses." And unfortunately, one of them is a subject I'm no longer working on.
Please fix this bug because I love seeing my recent activity, it gives me further motivation and it feels like I'm visually tracking my progress.
If I may, I have a few further suggestions on how to improve the feature.
Users should be able to add and delete whichever 5 courses they'd like featured. And they should be able to do this at will rather than having to actually solve some problem within a new course/domain. You as a website do not know the many ways that the feature could be used for by users, so its important to allow this type of flexibility. For example, if the feature were more flexible, I'd add 5 subjects I'd like to approach in the future and screenshot what they look like together, this adds a visual motivation for me as I replace the destination subjects with the subjects I'm currently on.
If an admin does not wish to add more flexibility to the My Courses feature, then perhaps a 2nd feature can be added wherein users can add courses to a "Favorite Courses" list or archive. This Favorite feature will work as suggested in (1), but the number of subjects users can add may even exceed five.
Below I have provided a screenshot of what my "Courses" page currently looks like, but the shown collection of subjects is outdated given that I have completed Geometry 2 and 3D. Yet, Geometry 2 remains and I cannot replace it. The bug has prevented the system from keeping track of my current progress. So as mentioned above, the screenshot explains what I see, but the 5 that should be shown are:
Linear Algebra - Multivariable Calculus - Classical Mechanics - Complex Numbers and; Differential Equations
