Teaching statistics using jamovi

Whenever you feel like talking about something else, there's always the off-topic forum

I teach statistics to undergrad biology students. I used to teach my students using R commands, under RStudio, to perform import/export data, data wrangling, statistical tests, and plot graphs.

For some students, they feel overwhelmed by too much programming. Then I learned about jamvoi, The spreadsheet-like user interface is exactly missed in R.

However, I have a general question. If I want to do something beyond what the menu options can provide, e.g. make a barplot of two groups with error bars, what would you recommend me to do? Should I write R codes via the Rj editor?

Thanks, Eric.

yup, two options eric.

you can either use the Rj editor, or if it's something you'd like to make it easy for other people to do, you could write a module (like the other modules in the jamovi library).
