Utterly ridiculous, and inexcusable, errors in Gilmore's RH294 course content

Beginning in Chapter 4.1 for RH294 in Gilmore Global's course content (HTML version), there's this:

What's wrong? Well, this:

variable name in double curly braces ({{ '{{' }}}}).

and this:

- name: Creates the user {{ '{{' }} user {{ '}}' }}

The usage of double "curly braces" is completely wrong. This is, quite frankly, unacceptable.

How is anyone new to Ansible supposed to know that it is wrong and that the correct usage is (for these two examples):

variable name in double curly braces ({{}}).

and

- name: Creates the user {{ user }}

These errors continue throughout the entirety of the RH294 course where double curly braces are used, beginning at chapter 4.

These errors are so significant that any student using Gilmore as their resource for course content cannot proceed beyond chapter 4, much less complete the course.

Yes, I realize that an instructor should know what's correct and guide the student appropriately. Even so, the course content should not be this messed up.

Thankfully, I took the VC RH294 course and therefore have the PDF guide from that class that shows the correct usage.

As student would say: pls fix

I've noticed the same and directed the correction to the students as errata. Seems to me it was a search+replace error as it is constant. It happens. It has been reported and flagged. Looking forward to the updates.
@Syed, curious when the content is refreshed, those who have claimed the html would get the updates as well or new book codes?

I'm very thankful for this community and for instructors like @Tracy_Baker . As a student I was very puzzled by the curly bracket arrange in Ch. 4. My first thought was to come to the RH Learning Community, because I knew I would find a solution/correction here. Thanks, @Tracy_Baker !
