Make Your Course More Interactive & Hands-on by Unleashing the Power of R

Want to show simulations in class to help students understand a concept? Aim to provide data sets that students can access right away and from anywhere? Wish you could incorporate more advanced statistics into your lesson plan, but your students don’t have the coding knowledge? Or even want to teach what you have been all along, but need tools to reduce computing drudgery?

Let Rguroo help. Rguroo is a point-and-click statistical software that unleashes the power of R on the cloud in order to make this powerful software available to instructors and students across the country.

Presenter Dr. Mori Jamshidian of California State University, Fullerton, discusses how this software can make an impact in your classroom and show how easily you can conduct simulations, share lesson plans, and more.
