I think you need to take a look at the website interface and update your course, Using Amazong RDS for Applications. There are tons of things that don't match the istructions. Here are a few specifics: 12 there is no Next, the subsequent steps are set up below 13 "On Step 2:" evidently, should have said "Under Templates." I have no idea what Step 2 is referring to. Cound not get "nano editor" to work. 14 Should have said, "Under DB instance size, select Burstable Classes then select db.t2.micro" 17 said "progross" rather than "progress"

It is out of date and I was unable to do the end because mysql was unable to find the given connection. I did understand the process, mostly because I am familiar with this type of thing.

It's a good lab but the instructions do not match the new "create database" interface and do not indicate to click on "Switch to your original interface.".

It appears as though you are testing a new UI for RDS database provisioning. The steps in 12 and 13 didn't match-up to what I was seeing on the screen (I ignored the informational text at the top of the page). The page kept showing this error: Error loading resource: s is undefined. Eventually, I looked at the informational message and noticed a message with a link that said something like: "Switch to the original database creation flow". When I clicked the link, the "old" DB creation screens appeared and then I was able to follow the instructions. Please update the training instuctions to tell readers to click this link. Otherwise, you'll have a lot of frustrated users.

RDS was not getting created as it said I was missing create resource role , probably you need to add the correct region this has to be done in.
