Looking to learn something new?
Java courses here are different than ones I am taking in college.
Why is everything being written straight into the console on these java courses? I primarily use Eclipse and am forced to use Eclipse for my Java classes. Just a curious question since they both work similarly

It is for illustrative purposes. He is not teaching you to program in Eclipse, he is teaching you java. It doesnt matter where it is done. Then reason for console is because its easier to write the code there and print output as opposed to creating a file. Quite simply put: Its easier, its faster, its simpler to use console.
Eclipse is an IDE. Just helps you java development.
