This site, hosted by the UK-based academic Chris Longmore, comprises a series of 'screencasts' (live captures of a computer screen). Each screencast demonstrates software that will be useful to students and teachers. For example, Longmore shows how to create tables and perform statistical operations using the analysis software SPSS. His datasets are available for download. Other software includes E-Prime, SuperLab, and Blackboard. The videos vary in resolution and length. They require Apple Quicktime version 7. Although designed for first year Psychology students the videos should be useful for teachers, students and researchers of Economics as well.
This is a 21'24" talk about statistical fallacies, recorded in July 2005. It can be watched online or downloaded in a variety of formats.
