    PROBLEM:

     

    On desktop and mobile web browsers, when we click on the links on the wiki pages to other pages (organised) in the modules, the Next and Previous Module Item buttons will appear.

     

     

    When viewing the course using the iOS and Android Mobile App, the user experience is not the same as compared to viewing the course using web browsers.

     

    When we click on the links on the wiki pages to other pages or items (organised) in the modules, we can view the page we link to but the Next and Previous Module Item buttons will not appear.

     

    This break the flow of the course content and confused the learners.

     

    Viewing the course using mobile app.

     

    The Next and Previous Module Item buttons will only appear when we click on "Modules" on the course menu to navigate through the content structure to reach the page or item.

     

     

     

    PROPOSE IDEA:

     

    Align the user experience on both web browser and mobile app to allow Next and Previous buttons to appear as long as the items are organised in modules, regardless whether the user navigate to the items from the course menu or from a link on a page.
