Where is the extra credit?

I just went through the Git course, and at the end of a few videos the presenter said I could try an extra-credit exercise, but I don't see extra credit anywhere on the page. I've looked extensively; if it's there, it's hiding or I'm blind.

How do I get to the extra credit?

When I went to git ready video and I scroll down before the video I see a section labeled extra credit

Maybe this will help ...

Ah, okay, thank you. When I complete the last step in the course I get a congratulations video telling me about the extra credit, but clicking the done button puts me back out on the Deep Dive page. I didn't know I would have to click back into the course to see the Extra Credit.

It looks like I see the same Extra Credit no matter which course step I click on - is that the case? The Teacher's Notes and Video Transcript are specific to the video on that step, but the Extra Credit isn't?

Extra credit is per badge not per video.

Thank you for your help. I thought Extra Credit would be something that appeared at the end of a course - I hadn't noticed it while I was watching the videos.

Is there a way to mark that I've done the Extra Credit so I can keep track of where I am? There are some I'd like to loop back to when I'm further on in the Track but I don't want to forget.

That's not a current feature but it's a neat idea. Why don't you make a it's own thread to let the rest of the forum know.
