Title: Experiences in Creating an Innovative Online Statistical Concepts Course

Keywords: online ; Inverted Classroom ; education ; E-Learning

The demand for online education has increased in recent years and has shown no signs of decreasing. This demand for online courses has required many educators to transform courses that were traditionally offered solely in an in-class setting to an online environment. This transition from the physical classroom to a virtual one can be a difficult task. Presented here are, our personal experiences of transforming a significant inversion of a large-enrollment statistics course to an analogous blended model online. We being our discussion by first describing how the methods we used were motivated by the in-class version of the course which is currently taught in an inverted setting. We then transition into a discussion where we highlight what we feel has created a successful online conceptual statistics course, with a focus on course structure, delivery of content and student assessment. We feel that the methods we present are not only applicable to conceptual statistics courses but could be successfully implemented in other online learning environments
