Intro to QA: What is the prerequisite video to learn what the instructor says in the first moments of the video?

I'm wondering what the preceding video should be to learn:

Hi Sandy,

The previous stages in this course tell you how to do these things. Keep in mind that what you are learning to do in this course is testing whether or not the software is doing what it is supposed to do. It's more or less deciding how to proceed in providing feedback to the people writing the software (testing cases, reports, and charts), it's not about writing the software itself.

Hope this helps.
