Keyboard shortcuts for Next and Previous buttons?

As an instructional designer, I spend much of my day working my way through the "horizontal" navigation of modules with the Next and Previous buttons – Scroll to the bottom of the page ... Next ... Scroll to the bottom of the page ... Next ... Scroll to the bottom of the page ... Next ...

Is there a keyboard shortcut for the Next and Previous buttons? It would be incredibly helpful to not have to scroll to the bottom of a page each time and be able to move to the Next page from anywhere in the current page.

(I realize this may depend on whether the cursor focus inside a field like the RCE, but maybe there will be a workaround. Indeed, this might be the main reason why these shortcuts don't exist.)

And if we do it, why not keyboard shortcuts for other common UI items, such as:

  • Next
  • Previous
  • Home
  • Modules
  • Grades
  • Settings
  • Cancel
  • Save
  • Publish

I'm not asking about this from an accessibility standpoint, but from a user/admin standpoint.
