I have designed us a new page layout for watching the classes.
Hopefully jumping to specific places in each class will now be a lot easier.
First improvement is a lot larger video screen by default.
There is a whole new video player and menus at the top when viewing on laptops and desktops.
The Return to menu allows you to return to different places on the site
The player with the blue buttons wil give you smoother and quicker movement around the video - hopefully less video freezes.
The player with the blue buttons also has a handy 30 second rewind for if you are struggling with a specific area of your artwork and quickly want to jump back and rewatch the last 30 seconds again
There is a help feature which will remind you what everything is for

The we are adding jump points to each class. If they are available you will see that there is a jump menu at the top of the page.
You can use this to jump to the different "chapters" in the class

The new player is not available on mobile devices yet - still working on that, but the experience on mobile devices is a lot better already with the new layout.

I hope you like it, please let me know what you think and any improvements needed O0

Thanks, Nolan, for always trying to give us the best learning experience possible.

Look forward to getting back to classes when I return at the end of the month.

Nolan, Tried the video. I think it is a lot better than what it use to be. It seems to be a lot more clearer and sharper. Like the way you can rewind also.  O0 O0
I think you are a smart cookie. rating 1-10 I give you a 9.5. Reason don't want it to go to your head.

Nolan,

I absolutely love the 30 second rewind.  Thank you for always trying to make our experience better and better.

I thought the clubs were an awesome idea and things couldn't get any better and now yet another improvement.

I am soooo glad I grabbed my place in the clubs before they filled.
