Your IDE threw a false error message.

I misspelled print() as ptint(). This should have thrown a relevant error message. Instead it told me it "couldn't find 'Student'". I pasted the code into Pycharm IDE, and it correctly identified the problem. That was aggravating, since I was trying to find a problem in the code related to the class not being found.

first_class.py
class Student:
    pass    
Student.name = "Jonathan"
me = Student()
print(me.name)

This must be an older course. I've noticed that the newer courses have a different display with a separate pane on the right to display the direct output from the Python interpreter. I'd bet that every course will have this once they get around to refreshing them.
