New to the world of Python. The picture attached is an error that a teacher at my school is receiving when he tries to run anything in IDLE.

I know nothing about coding/python/idle or anything of that nature. 

Sorry I am of little help.

Please can someone help me out with this error and provide any help or an answer. 

Thank you for dealing with a complete novice.

The problem is that your student created a file called which conflicts with the module "random" of the Python standard library. Please rename the file to and remove .pyc files (ex: random.pyc or __pycache__/random*pyc).
