Great resourse of case studies for statistics.  I like the filter that allows you to drill down to certain topics.  Although when a certain topic is selected an error message is displayed stating the filter is not working. However, it appears to filter the information just fine.

This site provides detailed information for a case study: background, experiment design, data analysis, and the raw data. It is a good repository for statistical examples for an introductory level course. The content is valid and easy to follow. It is very helpful for the instructors to make homework and exams. The limitation of the resource is that it covers only the very basic and simple statistical methods and not useful for some more advanced course.
