  1. I LOVE my Arbhar and the Lubadh, but the videos are SOOO long. Updated my module earlier and hopefully I can stumble into the new features.

    1. Maybe Instruo should try Expert Sleepers’ approach to Disting videos? I like how they’re pretty short and focused on each mode individually.

    2. I mean the entire video is bookmarked with dozens of chapters

      You can literally pinpoint the info you want and watch that

      The videos are great – I always come away knowing something more than I did going in
