The code itself plays nicely when I run it independently of the course, but in the course it gives an error. The error message doesn't seem to have much to do with what the problem is.

Basically you've gone further than requested in the challenge.

The question states that you should just log the factory object. But you've assigned one of the properties of the factory object to a $scope property and logged that instead.

Just try replacing your controller logic with ``` console.log(Course)

Ah, got it. Silly mistake, got confused what they really meant. Replacing with just console.log(Course) solve the problem. Thanks
