At this early point in our use of Prime, I have a number of courses published. All of them appear on the LMS home page. I don't want every course in the catalog to appear on the home page as recommended. This just confuses my user population. So what controls the courses that appear in that "recommended" area on the home page and how do I configure the system so they don't show up?
If you create a self-placed course with "Self Enroll" Enrollment Type then it will show as a Recommended Course in learners tab. If you will choose "Manager Nominated" then it won't show there. Choosing "Manager Approved" will also show the course in Recommended course section but learner will not be able to take the course until manager approves it.
The recommended course shows last 3 created course in your account. As mentioned by Mayank, it does not show manager nominated courses. Right now there is no way that admin can control the recommended courses on home page.
