Inserting mini lessons

I'm interested in putting 'mini-lessons' into a deck. So for example, show a short video of a piece in a foreign language that goes over some of the key vocabulary, then you practice the vocabulary. I know how to embed video, HTML etc... But what is the best to implement this?

Should I make them as regular cards and then the user can just ignore them when it comes time for them to be reviewed? Or is there another preferred format?

    If you want them to appear between particular new cards, the user will have to ignore them or something else, depending on how they care about them affecting the statistics.

    If you care only about the internal order of these cards, use Incremental reading: You can press "1" or "2" before pressing Space, to reschedule the IR cards without touching Anki's scheduler.

    Currently I do it this way:

    • / (root deck)
    • /::SR (spaced repetition deck)
    • /::IR (incremenal reading deck)

    "Mix new cards and reviews"

    IR deck's new card limit is chosen based on how often I want to see IR cards now. The limit is not used otherwise, unless I accidentally SRS-rate an IR card.
