Online Lectures

There are many online websites, like Khan Academy, Coursera and Lynda.com which provide high quality online courses on a wide range of subjects. A guide to relevant and good courses will be prepared and posted in due course here. Below are my own attempts, which are directed towards developing stand-alone MOOC’s in various areas of my interest.

Each lecture series contain approximately 15 lectures delivered during courses taught at IIIE:

NEW: Course on Introduction to Statistics

This is a newly developed COMPLETE course – that is, it is self-contained and contains all necessary materials for students to study completely on their own. Each lecture consists of FOUR units – (1) a videotaped lecture which covers the concepts for the lecture. (2) A LAB which has the student go through all the technical aspects of the same lecture in a DO IT YOURSELF session in EXCEL. (3) A Text for the lecture which explains all the concepts at greater length then the videotaped lecture.  (4) A QUIZ designed to test the students understanding of the lecture.  All of this material is available HERE. Links below provide the videotaped lectures ONLY.
