UBC Intro Stats: Resources: Java Applets
We discussed the use of Java Applets for teaching Introductory Statistics on October 27. Notes are available. The main conclusion is that applets are useful but most of the available ones are not perfect in a variety of ways (not showing important things, confusing with too many obscure details etc). The pefect solution would be to hire someone to modify the currently available open source applets (e.g. these) to our standards.
Upd (Dec 1, 2008). Short discussion during the next meeting.
