Academy course

Is there a forum specific to Academy course questions? I am enrolled In intermediate wordpress course and I am not clear on how or where questions from the material (specific modules) can be asked and addressed. I am on the Customizer Module and am missing where you add the color scheme section to the customizer menu. I can't be the only one lost here... please advise. thank you.

Also-the Member Forum-Am I missing a search feature here or do you have to scroll though all of the discussions to find what I'm looking for?
