Hi James:

In an Angular factory you want to build up an object and then return it. You can do this just like in any normal function. So it can look like this:

angular.module('treehouseCourse', [])
  .factory('Course', function () {
    var myObject = {
      title: 'Intro to Angular'
    };
    return myObject;
  });

Hope that helps!

angular.module('treehouseCourse', [])
    .factory('Course', function () {
        return = { 'title': 'Intro to Angular' };
})  

This will also work!

    return course;

Thanks Andrew, for the great answer above, As I understand you return a JSON object when you initialize the factory.
