The Shiny package in R allows users to create web applications without having to know web programming. This provides an opportunity for statistics teachers to create interactive web applications specific to their courses and classroom examples. These apps can help students learn statistical concepts in an engaging and efficient manner. This poster will demonstrate examples of Shiny apps that have been created for specific class examples. One app has been used in introductory statistics courses to help students learn advantages and disadvantages of various sampling methods. Another app has been used in an experimental design course to help students discover when and why a Latin Squares design may be advantageous over a design with zero or one blocking factor.
