The navigation bar is the row of links you will find at the top left of you Moodle site. The navigation bar shows a user their current context path, with links to the higher contexts.

The navigation bar is sometimes referred to as breadcrumbs (see children's story). This term can be confusing, since the navigation bar does not always reflect the path followed by the user to reach the current page.
The user is in the "An Upload File assignment" activity in Assignments, in the "Features Demo" course, English sub course category in Courses.
