Answers:

Check the ID fieldnamemyFirstTextView.It is case sensitive.

Type myFirstTextView.
The IDE will show all the attributes of the TextView. Select text.

For any build errors, close the project and open it again. Then run the program.

If you are using android studio 4.0 and kotlin 1.4 onwards.
This is because kotlin synthetics is no more available which was allowing assignment to TextView (or other elements) as shown in the video.

1) In your module level build.gradle at modeule level in "android" tag add
   buildFeatures {
        viewBinding = true
    }

2) in your FirstActivity.kt file use following instead of directly assigning text. 
Make sure you import the dependency when the ActivityFirstBinding turns coloured. Android studio will add import line automatically when you update dependency.

  val binding = ActivityFirstBinding.inflate(layoutInflater)
        binding.myFirstTextView.text = "Hello, your text here"
