How are the Tegmentum and the Dorsal Medulla the same thing if they're located in different sections of the brain?

I am trying to learn about the brain, I can't currently afford college so I'm teaching myself to the best of my ability and I'm confused about something.

So- The Medulla Oblongata is made up of the ventral medulla and the dorsal medulla, right?

The Medulla Oblongata is located in the HINDBRAIN-

However the Dorsal Medulla is also called the Tegmentum, but the tegmentum is located in the MIDBRAIN with the optic tectum and colliculi.

Is my information just wrong? Or is there something I'm missing?

Like I said I'm trying my best to teach myself all of this stuff so I don't have a teacher I can ask these things to. Is there someone who has a degree in neurology or psychology that can help me out?
