Scott Crawford

I'm a lecturer at the University of Wyoming Department of Statistics and I have taught introductory courses, methods courses, and graduate level courses. I like to use Webassign because it is simple for the student to find the course material, I can create randomized homework questions, and students get immediate feedback.  I can use the computer to get rid of z and t tables, and assign partial credit for exams.

I have a masters from BYU and a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University. I've developed a number of online courses completely hosted in Webassign. I have over 400 students per semester. I don't require a textbook, instead I use videos, notes, and computerized homework. I enjoy the programming in PERL to make questions match exactly the notation I want to use. I make use of the discussion board and my TA's spend their time tutoring instead of grading. I believe it is possible to make an online course as good as any in class setting.
