Console Foundations course?

I am working through the OOP for Beginning Python. In the project workspace, the teacher's console says:


However, my workspace console says:


How do I get the workspace console to default the rpg file into the console?

Someone in the particular video comments had the same question and someone referenced a course called "Console Foundations"; however I cannot find that course or any other course related.

Thank you, Jonathan.

To get to treehouse:~/workspace/rpg$ from treehouse:~/workspace$ you would enter

cd rpg

cd stands for change directory. To list the contents of the current directory enter


(thats a lowercase L and s).

I couldn't find the console course either.

I did a search in the library for console which is why I didn't receive any results. Turns out there is a course: Introduction to the Terminal
