I have just discovered, through this answer, a nice video resource to share with students in introductory statistics courses. The lectures, produced by the Khan Academy, are fairly didactic and well illustrated. I could not find the author of the videos.

Is there another set of video courses which I could recommend to my students, who are social scientists taking an introductory course in statistics?

The aforementioned set is software-independent and free to watch, two conditions that I need to maintain.

    $\begingroup$ Did you look at this question, Statistics/Probability Videos for Beginners, and the one that is linked to it? $\endgroup$ – chl Mar 13 '11 at 15:41
  • $\begingroup$ @chl: No, I admit I had missed the answer that already mentioned the Khan Academy material. But the other links are kind of unsatisfying to me because they seem recommended for specific audiences (life sciences, statisticians, Excel and R users) that deviate too far from mine. What I really like in the Khan Academy is the 'generic fit' of the lectures, and that is what I am now looking for elsewhere. $\endgroup$ – Fr. Mar 13 '11 at 15:47

http://www.statisticslectures.com/ - I think, this is a really high quality resource. Explanations are clear, concise and very informative.

The Udacity course : *Introduction to Statistics (st101) Making Decisions Based on Data *

Was really good. I learned a lot and it's focused on real world examples. They have an introductory video here :

    $\begingroup$ Other reactions to the course are actually pretty negative, and I can understand why. I watched a few videos and was unimpressed. $\endgroup$ – Fr. Oct 13 '12 at 12:50
