      Description

      We can not navigate through the course page easily. H3 element are currently the way to understand that we are in a new section - if a content contain an h3 it may be confused as a new section. If we add the region aria role, then we could use screenreader shortcut to navigate between section.

      Original report: "The main course page could use a few simple changes that would help identify each topic as a region and label them with the proper label. The changes can be made without changing the page structure or visual appearance."
