More Efficient LAyers, Markers or States?

I’m building what is becoming a rather large course (+400 slides). It includes branching and a lot of technical information that I’m trying to keep interesting by presenting in a “search and discover” fashion. Users can browse the slide pages and click to reveal more, in the form of short video’s, graphs or brief write-ups. My question is in building this, is there any difference in how much coding is running in the background and hence the efficiency/ speed of execution (i.e. no delays in display or long uploads of the slides) if I use layers verses markers verses object states?
I would especially refer to changing states as brilliantly presented by calcuttr (https://player.vimeo.com/video/149188565) since it requires NO triggers or layers. Some of my slides have +20 layers and double that in triggers since each layer needs two; one to open & one to close. Add to that variables to track the progress and it starts to get “thick”. Simpler, intuitively seems like the better choice or am I being naive?
Lastly, the final product is going to be loaded (God willing) onto our Moodle LMS. My concern is ultimately the final ‘user experience’. I’ve broken up the course (scenes) into individual Chapters or Modules published as separate storyline ‘courses’ so that we can track progress and hopefully at the same time speed up the viewing into manageable chunks. Perhaps the other question is will each slide page load individually from the platform or does the entire course load at once?
Any insights would be most greatly appreciated. After all Storyline is a great product with an even greater community!
