Statistics is the science of making sense of data - quite a useful skill! Even more useful is this online introductory stats course using Excel. If you know some stats already, you will appreciate learning how to apply Excel's power to statistics. and if you know Excel already, you will learn about some of its hidden functionality and pick up some useful statistics knowledge along the way - as we statisticians say: "my all your statistics be significant".
There is also a public discussion board where you can post your thoughts, as well as a few statistical applets. If you are interested in survey design, check out Asset, our Academic Survey System and Evaluation Tool, where you can manage your own surveys and collect data.
Finally, we have collected a few sample data sets you could explore on your own using - of course - Excel.
