The My Group section on the left will list any and all groups in your account, if you have two course bundles (for example a microsoft bundle and a photography bundle) you can use these groups to filter your course view to only display the courses in that group.

Each course has a few bits of information including the Course title, type (all items are listed as course) action (where you elect to start or resume a course) date (the date the course was updated in the system) and group (the group that course belongs to)

If you've already started a course it will also show you the % of the course you have completed underneath the resume button.
