SOCR, Statistics Online Computational Resource has a huge user base who constantly access the educational data present and java tools which use these data to aid in understanding statistics.
As far as the technology is concerned, currently all the applications are written in
java and are presented as java applets. The reach of these applications is bottlenecked by technology.
The world is going the HTML5 way. Browsers are becoming more powerful.
We intend to create a toolbox which will serve users on all platforms. We are primarily using
CoffeeScript (compiles to
SpiderMonkey), we perform all the calculations on the browser with no server dependency. File management, database, computation will be performed inside the browser.
