Statistics: An Animated Journey is a turn-key online course package that uses videos with animation to help students develop a basic understanding of statistical concepts and methods that are used in other disciplines. Statistics is a process that involves understanding types of data, representing data, analyzing data and using data to make predictions and decisions. Topics include statistical graphs of data, measures of central tendency, measures of data variation, relative standing, probability, the binomial and normal distributions, the Central Limit Theorem, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, categorical analysis, regression, and correlation.

Gene Seelbach

Gene Seelbach is a San Francisco Bay Area based semi-retired mathematics professor and college administrator, who has been a software developer of mathematics online courses for many years. Having started software development with an Apple II computer in 1980 he has experienced enormous changes in hardware and software in that 40-year period. His educational background includes a PhD in mathematics from the University of Wyoming with a considerable background in both statistics and computer science. He has a passion for developing online content that is user-friendly, simple to use and is effective at getting students excited about learning mathematics. Although still active in software development for mathematics and statistics at, he now spends more time enjoying recreational activities like cycling, hiking and other outdoor activities.

Geoffre A. Seelbach

Geoff Seelbach is a system's engineer who started his career shortly after the advent of personal computers in the 1980’s.  He focused primarily on the networking of personal and minicomputers. In 1988 he developed and taught a course for Foothill College called “Networking the IBM PC”. During the 1990’s at Lanquest Group in Santa Clara, CA, he assembled and managed a world-class network test lab and managed a group of 25 technicians and engineers who ran performance and functional tests on a wide variety of network products. He managed the development of various test suites and published hundreds of test reports and numerous articles in magazines such as Network World and PC Magazine.  During this period, he was a speaker at various industry trade shows. Subsequently, at MITB, Inc he managed the Sunnyvale location and implementations of Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) Software with a 96% success rate.  At he is involved in product design, delivery and support.  His education consists of a degree in engineering and numerous products certifications. His interests include math and the sciences, hiking, camping and travel as well as spending time with his family and friends.
