We developed and published an interactive system for learning statistics along with the progress of computers and network abilities. We standardized the total design, added dynamic charts and improved slides for lectures using Java Applets, and expanded the search function. We offered these materials as lecture notes to teaching staff and also to business people for self-study. Our system consists of 'Search Engines and Links', 'Statistics and Excel', 'Data Analysis (Description part and Inference part)', 'Basic Theory of Regression Analysis', 'Analysis of Time-Series and Seasonal Adjustment', 'Lectures on Multivariate Analysis' and 'Statistical Analysis by Statistica'. 'Search Engines and Links' shows a brief explanation of the Internet, how to retrieve econometric and social information (statistical data), and how to download data. 'Statistics and Excel' teaches the fundamental data analysis procedures on the PC through the operation of so-called spreadsheet software, such as Excel. 'Data Analysis' shows the basics of statistical analysis and 'Statistical Analysis by Statistica' introduces one of the popular software programs available for statistical analysis. In order to support the understanding of practical data analysis technologies explained in the online text, the contents of each category offers keyword searching functions, supplementary explanation of appointed keywords, browsing and downloading slides for lectures, links to reference sites, databases for exercises, and Q＆A, which cannot be covered by conventional paper textbooks. We try to use short, easy and refined sentences, colors, hyperlinks, images, and dynamic charts, and not to be dependent on only texts and numerical formulas, to promote intuitive understanding of the concept of statistics.
