Navigation update

Description We are updating the navigation around Moodle.


The main aim is to reduce the cognitive load associated with navigating around a Moodle site. For anyone that is new to using our LMS, there are a lot of settings that are immediately present and possibly not relevant. We are going through and improving the layout of the navigation from the front page all the way to how different activities are displaying settings and buttons.

The main aims for this project are to improve the layout of information within the timeline block to make it easier to extract important information, replace pagination with "show more" (lazy-loading) functionality, and to provide bug fixes that improve the overall usability of the block.
