Paths - are you new or just looking for some more structure in your learning process? Paths is a good start. We offer only a few for now such as beginners, injury..
Series - exactly what the name says. They consist of episodes, you can subscribe to one (or rather be subscribed to notifications whenever a new episode comes out). We also track your progress throughout any given series and let you know what percentage is completed.
Tags - quite simple concept. Each and every video we publish is tagged, sometimes several times. Browse all the tags and narrow down your search even more.
Site search will give the best possible result from both libraries including any video timestamps. As you know we still can not search within the video itself (more on Timestamps here), so we had to come up with a system of tagging in video content.
Filters will help you fine tune your search. Show me the beginner lectures, 5-10 minutes long, given by Alan? We got you. This is what filters are for.
Lastly, tags - more about tags here
