      Description

      The pagination controls across different tools at present are pretty inconsistent, both in terms of styling and alignment on the page. In many cases, however, the following are occurring:

      1) The pagination controls have unnecessary styling applied to them, which draws unnecessary prominence to the controls when they should fade into the background as much as possible, particularly because those that need them know where to look to find them. This styling also increases the height of the pagination controls, which pushes the actual tool content further down on the page.

      2) The pagination controls appear, at times, aligned left on the page. This interrupts the visual flow of the page, as it again makes the pagination controls as prominent as actual tool content. These should be aligned right whenever possible, so that they're out of the way and consistently located for users to navigate to the "next" or "previous" page.

      A good model for basic, unobtrusive styling is the pagination controls as they exist in Site Info / Announcements:

      While not complete, here are some examples of what could be changed:

      Instructor / Admin view

      • Site Info - align pagination controls to the right
      • Calendar - update pagination styling (currently showing up in blue) and align right
      • Announcements - align pagination controls to the right
      • Assignments - simplify pagination styling
      • Worksite Setup - update pagination styling and align right
      • Sites (admin) - update pagination styling and align right
      • Realms (admin) - update pagination styling and align right
      • Users (admin) - update pagination styling and align right
      • Membership - update pagination styling and align right

      Student View

      • Announcements - align pagination controls to the right
      • Assignments - simplify pagination styling and align right
