Regarding the "repeating dot action" after c + i, can you please clarify how the repetition is done? (~21:31)
I understood the video to instruct us that after doing " c " + " i " + " ' " + " foo ", we should press " . ". I have even tried " . " + " --> ". However, I am not able to get the repeating 'foo' written. Any direction or clarification in understanding, is greatly appreciated.

ci'foo and then ESC (escape). That stands for "change everything inside the surrounding single quotes (apostrophes) to foo".
Then he moves the cursor between another pair of single quotes and types a dot (period), which repeats the previous sequence. Note that this particular sequence will only be effective if you move between a pair of single quotes before pressing the dot again.
