ViewController.swift
class ViewController: UIViewController {

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
        @IBOutlets weak var viewDidLoad: UILabel!
    }

    override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated
@IBOutlets weak var didReceiveMemoryWarning: UILabel!
    }

}

class ViewController: UIViewController {
    // 1) Notice the @IBOutlet is outside of the viewDidLoad function.
    // 2) The variable name is funFactLabel not viewDidLoad.
    // 3) It's @IBOutlet not @IBOutlets.
    @IBOutlet weak var funFactLabel: UILabel!

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
    }

    override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        super.didReceiveMemoryWarning()
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.
    }

}

You should declare

@IBOutlet weak var textLabel: UILabel!

outside those methods (and the name of the var is: textLabel and not viewDidLoad)

Thanks
