Do all of your learners need to know all of the stuff all of the time?
Sometimes good enough is good enough and sometimes we might better serve our learners by giving them some flexibility in terms of the level of achievement that is needed for each and every step along the learning journey.

"Physical books are—more or less—textually stable. We own them, we don’t simply borrow them for a while from an online vendor or download them from some nebulous cloud. But how much integrity can you attribute to pixels? Who’s to say that some evil jokester, religious zealot, or government agency might not quietly start altering texts, adjusting them to conform with current beliefs and ideologies?"
As technology advances, doomsaying remains constant.
