[Course Forum] The Periodic Table by BenHutchinson

I’ve been doing ‘The Periodic Table’ course which is excellent, apart from the last level, as it contains 4 incorrect element names. When the course was created 3 years ago they were correct but elements 113, 115, 117 & 118 now have different names from those shown in this course

[Should be 113=Nihonium, 115=Moscovium, 117=Tennessine, 118=Oganesson]

Clearly I don’t want to be learning incorrect information but there’s no way of correcting it or of contacting the course creator (BenHutchinson).

I guess it also isn’t possible to duplicate the course and to then change those incorrectly named elements?

I have sent the course creator an email to invite him/her to the new forum.
If the course creator is no longer active on Memrise or rather wouldn’t maintain the course, I may be able to add you as a contributor. Let’s wait for their reply.

Hi Lien,
Just wondering whether there has been a reply as yet?

Hi, Thanks for reminding me! I haven’t heard back so assume they’re no longer interested. You’ve been added as a contributor. If you like, you can update the course via the Edit Course button that should appear when you access the course via the website.

Thank you Lien.
I’ll go in and make those 4 amendments.

Hi, apologies for my lack of attention to this course, I kind of left memrise a while ago, surprised to still see the course growing! Thanks Lien for allowing those changes, I doubt I will remember to come back to the course if new elements receive names, but if @tony.winyardf6 is still around and active, then by all means keep the course up to date!
Thanks, Ben

Another periodic table course: https://www.memrise.com/course/73957/a-lesson-periodic-table/ also has the same errors regarding new element names. Can this course also be corrected?

What I find annoying is that I made a Periodic Table course:


And when I do this Ben Hutinson makes the coolest one ever

but I have a periodic table song in which @MarshallLanguages should use to help him in my course.
I hope everyone looks at my video and that you subscribe to ASAP Science
