Switching between Modules

In Canvas, is there a way to link to previous modules that have been accessed or opened previously. For example:

We are in Week 5 of the course, working in the Week 5 module. 
I want students to be able in as fewest clicks as possible jump to module 2 to view content that is related to the topic of Week 5.

Is this possible? Is there hot buttons that can be created, or do hot links need to be coded on the bottom or tops of "module pages" as a default for students to be able to hop back and forth between modules?

Coming from Blackboard SaaS, we were able to have this as an option on the left side menu by using course links. Seeing as the course nav menu is locked and not customizable, is there any way to create this navigation short cut for students.

Hi @UHD_AdminNickM ...

On the "Modules" index page, How do I use the Modules Index Page?, there isn't a built-in way to link back to previous or up-coming modules to put links to those areas within the current module.  What you can do, however, is to create a content page within a module.  Then, within that page, you can create links or buttons which point to those past or future modules in your course.  This Guide will take you through how you can create a link on a page and then choose a module within your course to link to:
