This week Miranda gave  out cards to increase awareness of our website  to participants of the annual SIMLESA workshop in Harare, Zimbabwe.  The advantage of our BeST open online statistical course is that it is available 24/7 ,there is no start and finish date, and the software we use is freely available. We recommend to start at the beginning and work in a linear fashion, through each module (work down the page). Also have a look at FAQ and contact. The modules are being adapted and progressed, and we welcome comments. We aim to keep it simple so that access is possible in Africa where internet may be slow or intermittent. Some of the material is supposed to be observed as a video, some  are downloadable so you can print out and try for yourself.

An agricultural scientist and statistician, with years of experience in research, development and lecturing in tertiary education. I am keen to teach the link between the scientific research question, the design and subsequent analysis and reporting. I have taught over 800 students statistics in the last couple of years and I enjoy working with life long learners using new skills. R is an amazing software that is a new paradigm for the international community of applied scientist. Statistical and data skills are essential in science. I strongly support funding for research in Africa for their scientists.
