This paper chronicles experience in designing graduate-level statistics instruction for delivery via the internet. The paper begins with a summary of course content and specific procedures for instructional interaction via the internet. Special challenges posed by both the course content and the Internet mode of instruction are identified, and strategies for resolving the challenges are provided. Also included are comparisons of internet-based delivery of graduate-level statistics with the more traditional face-to-face mode of instructional interaction. Finally, some extensions, applications, and future directions for Internet-based quantitative instruction are outlined. (ASK)
