Biostatistics for the Health Sciences:  Creating an Online Course

This case study outlines the creation and implementation of an asynchronous online course designed to teach introductory graduate-level statistics at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center School of Public Health.  In designing the course, a variety of software programs were used to enhance specific components of the course website.  The course management system used was Moodle, which is open source software.  Student responses to surveys as well as the instructor's own experiences revealed some difficulties with the course implementation, but also an overall feeling of success with the project.
