Why is this teacher showing us old 1998 programming?

I downloaded the following files for this video, the code did not match, it was very confusing on the old coding techniques used in the video until I had to do further research on the PROPER ways on making this dice to roll and get the number. Please review the proper code.

<div class="contentHolder"></div>
<button type="button" class="myButton">Roll Dice</button>
* {
  font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  text-align: center;
button {
  background-color: rgb(82, 186, 179);
  border-radius: 6px;
  border: none;
  color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
  padding: 10px;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  width: 200px;
  cursor: pointer;
.contentHolder {
  height: 100px;
  width: 100px;
  padding: 50px;
  margin: 50px auto;
  border: 1px solid gray;
  border-radius: 10px;  
function Dice(){
    this.sides = 6;

Dice.prototype.roll = function (){
  var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * this.sides) + 1;
  return randomNumber;

Dice.prototype.printNumber = function (){
  var contentHolder = document.querySelector(".contentHolder");
  contentHolder.innerHTML = this.roll();

var myDice = new Dice();
var button = document.querySelector(".myButton");
button.addEventListener("click", myDice.printNumber.bind(myDice), false);
