The bootloader is put on the chip by a standard AVR programmer, for example an AVR ISP MKII: http://store.atmel.com/PartDetail.aspx?q=p:10500054#tc:description, these programmers can also load program code and memory as well as set fuses.
We don't use these programmers in the course because being an 'introduction' we wanted to keep things cheap+simple....and if it turns out you really love this stuff, spend some money on a programmer/debugger.
