Display Module Location of Item Being Viewed

Currently, if a user is navigating through Module items, they are unable to tell “where in the Module” they currently are. Hovering over the ‘Next’ or ‘Previous’ buttons does indicate the following or preceding items, but we have had students indicate interest in Canvas making it more apparent when they are moving from one Module to the next. As an example, we feel that displaying a Module item number--such as if it displayed “Module 1 [3/5]” in the bottom-center area between the buttons--would be a easy way to provide this for students.

There are lots of issues with navigation inside a Canvas course, and this feature would help students find their way around.
