<wbr> Tag, What for?
In the stage 2 namely "Text" of HTML Deep Dive, there is a video named "Abbreviations, Addresses and Citations". In this video Nick tells about the wbr tag but he doesn't apply it in the way it was meant to be. By this , I mean it doesn't do anything in his example. My suggestion is to repeat the video and give a more suitable example for this tag so that we can know it's correct usage. If repeating looks hard then atleast provide an applicable example in the project files and mention the updating of project files in Teacher's Notes.

It's used correctly.

You are right, you can't see the change.
In this particular case, it's hard to show using just HTML, because you can't limit the size of the element's container. In order to size an element's container you need to understand how CSS any maybe introduces too much complexity.
I suppose you could use an extremely long URL but that's a bit contrived.
