Issue 3: Navigation mechanism to Navigation bars/Menus missing

Issue Summary

There is no mechanism to navigate to navigation bars or menus
The nature of the application requires that users need to use the navigation bars and menus frequently to go to different pages/locations. Keyboard users in particular screen reader users cannot navigate to the navigation bars/menus with the current implementation.
Use a meaningful Heading H2 with each navigation bar/menu, for example, "Course menu".
If you prefer not to display the heading in the browser, use CSS off-screen positioning technique.
