# Statistics/Probability Videos for Beginners

There was already a request for Mathematical Statistics Videos, but it explicitly asked from people for

videos that provide a rigorous mathematical presentation of statistics. i.e., videos that might accompany a course that use a textbook mentioned in this discussion on...

So at the same time I am wondering, what recommendation do you have for stat/prob - 101 - video courses?

-

I think a number of the suggestions put forward on the mathematical statistics video question probably fall in the stats 101 category:

The Stat 579 Videos on statistical computing in R are also quite good:

Great list Jeromy, thank you :) – Tal Galili Aug 17 '10 at 4:47
stat579: Where exactly are the video lectures? – George Dontas Aug 22 '10 at 11:52
@gd047 That's sad. stat579 videos appear to have been removed. I've removed the link from my answer. – Jeromy Anglim Aug 22 '10 at 12:07
Perhaps because this "newer version" is available. public.iastate.edu/~hofmann/stat480 – George Dontas Aug 22 '10 at 14:32
+1 For 579, I really enjoyed the videos (I added descriptions for some of the videos) – Max Gordon Nov 20 '11 at 9:48

I would suggest Statistics 401 (from Iowa State University). This is the link for Lesson 1. There are 64 lectures in total. (Here is the last one). Unfortunately, I haven't found the links gathered together in one page. I think also that lessons 21,26 and 39 are missing. However, I don't remember having any problem in following the course). You can also find the handouts for this class posted here.

Some other introductory courses in Statistics are:

Introductory Probability and Statistics for Business

Basics of probability and statistics

Lesson Videos for Statistics

2007 SLUO Lectures on Statistics

As of 2013, the ISU statistics 401 videos are marked private on YouTube. – gung Feb 28 '13 at 0:13

GD047 linked to a UC Berkeley video on statistics, and I had another one. It's similar to MIT's Open Courseware (maybe a little lower quality). This one is for the Intro Statistics and Probability Class. It unfortunately only has 9 episodes, but it's free :).

Harvard's Stat 110 Probability taught by Joseph Blitzstein is available on iTunesU or Academic Earth.

You should definitely consider the Stats courses on Udacity.

There is also a ST095 course on Udacity, which I would have linked to but the link was blocked in this answer. Replace the 101 in the above link with 095.

EdX, which is a consortium between Harvard, MIT and Berkeley also has a Stats course from Berkeley
