Please note that I don't have time to offer one-on-one support, except to registered members of the lynda.com online training library: Submit your support request through that site. Other sources of help on drupal.org include the documentation, forums, and chat network. (I have sections on how to get the most from them in both my videos and my book.)
Support tips below mostly relate to my videos for lynda.com.

In the "Shipping products" video of my lynda.com course, "Create Your First Online Store with Drupal Commerce", you see a "Flat rate" shipping method after installing the Commerce Shipping module.
However, its developers removed that shipping method from the module shortly after I recorded the course. It's still available separately, however: To get it, download and install "Commerce Shipping Flat Rate.
Lynda.com subscriber Sarah Faraud uncovered an error at the 2:12 mark of the "Downloading and installing Drupal on a Mac" video in Drupal Essential Training. I stated:
Now the file itself was called settings.php and it's created by duplicating this default.settings.php. You can also just delete the word default and the period, but I prefer to leave a backup.
It turns out that deleting the original default.settings.php file causes problems, so just leave it there! My apologies to anyone who's been inconvenienced by this error.
If for some reason the default exercise file username (admin) and password (booth) don't work, you can change them in the database itself using phpMyAdmin. (This technique is demonstrated in a video from Chapter 8, "Recovering from disasters".)
You should now be able to log in with that username and new password.
...as far as I can tell there is no information telling the student exactly what is in each section of the DVD. I know there are headers like 'Enabling Other Content Types' for example but you've got to watch that section to find out exactly what's in it...
Personally I'd REALLY appreciate some sort of index. Any chance you could create one?
You're in luck! The videos are closed-captioned, and the captions are searchable. Here's what you do:
1) On the video series' home page, click on "Closed Captioning" to expose those controls.
2) Enter the text you'd like to search in the "find text in captions" box.
