Hi Emilio,

I'm not sure why you want to skip them but I recommend that you try to complete them since it will solidify the concepts more than just watching the videos.

If you need to skip it then you can normally use the stage progress bar that appears above the videos, quizzes and code challenges. It shows you which step you're on and you click the next step to move on.

In this case though, you're on the last step of that stage. Near the top left corner you should see a link that says "Java Basics". That will take you back to the main course page where you can find the next stage and click the first video for that stage.

Keep in mind that if you skip the code challenges you won't get your points or badges for completing a stage and the course will show up as incomplete.

I see the progress bar that shows little circles and I see no such step to skip to the next video in the series. What I do see, when I click to the main course, is to skip nearly 4 hours worth of content (I am a 15 minutes in). This is extremely not user friendly and I suspect someone skimped on hiring a user interface designer. How do I skip current video I am in (third video in beginner java, it's 3 minutes and 18 seconds long) and go on to the next one in that same series. Can you not design a button that says "Skip to the next video?"

Right now you're on the last challenge of the stage so you're on the last circle and there wouldn't be another circle after to click on.

If you click on the "java basics" link it should take you to here: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/java-basics

From there you can see the 3 stages of the course and you can expand the steps for the second stage "Using your New Tools ". Then you can click on the first video to get going again.

This is the next video you're trying to get to https://teamtreehouse.com/library/multiple-strings

Hey thank you. I am now used to this and was a bit frustrated in the beginning since I'm a bit code-challenged. Thank you!
