Active Record Basics Needs A Do Over

The instructor Hampton Catlin is obviously knowledgeable and approachable, but there are too many points of confusion throughout the tutorial due to errors he makes, and recovers from, along the way. Your audience needs and demands clarity every step of the way. It is clear that this tutorial was accomplished in one take, and that is not how teaching works. Please take the time to thoughtfully remake this tutorial with your audience in mind.

100% agree. Team Treehouse please consider re-making this course. Active Record is the heart of Rails.
