Becky ni hao!!
what is the difference between "Shàngbān" and "gōngzuò". Thanks in advance

"Shāngbān" only can be a verb. "Gōngzuò" both can be a verb and noun. Like you can say "Wǒ qù shàngbān. "Wǒ qù gōngzuò." both mean I go to work.  You can also say Nǐ de gōngzuò shì shénme?(What's your job?)" But you can't say "Nǐ de shàngbān shì shénme?"
So, "shàngbān" means to work, "gōngzuò" means to work and job.

Nice lesson! A question for you: if I want to say "good morning" is it more correct to use "ni zao" (like in the 3rd lesson) or "zaoshang hao" (like in this lesson)? Or is it just the same??

Actually, they are same. "Nǐ zǎo"  is just more casual than"Zǎoshang hǎo." :)

Hello bashodasahn, I checked out the video and it seems to work well. Is it streaming slowly? Could you tell me where you were located when you watched the video? Does it work now? Let me know if you still have questions or need any help.
