Bonus master classes

Just wondering why you do not receive points or badges for the bonus master class sections?

harry abernethy, that's a good question! Let me ping Jeremy Jantz, so we can see the logic behind this!

harry abernethy We don't actually award points or badges for any of our existing bonus content. The reason behind this is that bonus content is currently all video-based, without any quizzes or code challenges. We don't feel right about awarding points for simply watching videos. We'd like points/badges to indicate that you have a solid grasp of the content, and we can't do that without some level of testing (quizzes, challenges).

Seems legit
