"Using an online course to support instruction of introductory statistics"
with Oded Meyer, Carnegie Mellon University

2:00 to 2:30 pm Eastern time, August 14th, 2007

Carnegie Mellon University was funded to develop a "stand-alone" web-based introductory statistics course, and for the last several semesters we've been studying different ways in which the course can be used to support instruction. In this presentation I'll discuss some of the challenges in developing such a learning environment and ways in which the course tries to address them, as well as describe the design and results of our studies.
