R and Rpanel

- The rpanel package provides a set of simple interactive controls for R functions which are particularly useful in creating dynamic graphics

http://www.stats.gla.ac.uk/~adrian/rpanel/

- R-books: Interactive course-notes/text books which both animate key concepts and also provide learner feed-back.

Model Choice

- Model Choice is a system that presents a graded series of scenarios to students, at a level appropriate to their current learning, and challenges them to choose from a list the probability distribution that should be used to model the outcome of the stochastic experiment being described.
