Module Headings

Module Headings

It would be nice if there were module headings at the top of pages, assignments, quizzes, links, and attachments. With links and assignments, you can at least see the module title in the little breadcrumb trail at the top, but pages, assignments, and quizzes do not have an indication of the module you are in.

As students and professionals go through a course asynchronously, it's hard for them to tell which module they're in (or if that they have even moved to a new module) if they are just clicking next. An instructor could make an intro page for each module and possibly make my own heading in the rich content editor, but it would be easier and look nicer to just have the module heading at the top of each page, assignment, quiz, etc. 

I also like this suggestion about having a progress bar for modules.

@KellyHong Thanks for sharing this idea, and for including the link to  Module Progress Bar. We also have a long-standing and actively monitored idea that is similar to what you've requested: would you have a look at    Accurate Breadcrumb Trail in Modules to see if it essentially captures what you've requested?

Great suggestions! I would love to see these features as well.

Yes, yes please on this! I have to discourage students from using Back/Next and actively show them why--because they might jump to a new module and not know they've done it (the breadcrumb shows pages, not the module)..

Thank you!

@Stefanie Hi, Stephanie. Thank you for your response. Changing all breadcrumb trails to include the module instead of item type would definitely be beneficial, I am wondering if it will still be easy to not notice moving into a new module since the breadcrumb trail is small and if it would be more apparent which module you're in if there were some sort of Module Title heading at the top of each item within a module.

@KellyHong Thanks! We'll move this forward for discussion separately, keeping in mind that we have active conversations underway framed around the same problem statement (I'm including the links here again to maintain unification):
