Migrating to Excel in Quantitative Methods Courses with On-line Training Videos

Vicki Beaupré-Odorico Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

For about 7 years I have been teaching Quantitative Methods in Social Science Research, a required course for Social Science Students that involves statistical analysis. With the rising cost of maintaining our software license agreement with a statistical package provider, the Methods sub-committee at our college decided to replace our prior solution with a more economical one, which required us to retool and retrain both faculty and students. We rose to the challenge and recently added a customizable on-line training video series that allows us to focus our valuable class time on teaching statistics and quantitative methodology - putting them into practice, rather than software training.
