Korean Government has led the K-MOOC project since 2015 by taking advantage of advanced IT and high-speed network infra-structure in Korea. At the same period, we have developed a software for teaching statistics called eStat which is a web-based, dynamic, graphical software to all levels of students. This eStat system enables to develop a mobile learning course of Elementary Statistics for the K-MOOC which is consisted of eBook, lecture movie, web-based data processing as a statistical package and simulation module for teaching statistics. The eStat, www.estat.me, includes the most of graphs in the textbook and simulation modules for Statistics Education such as distributions, central limit theorem, confidence interval and regression. All of these modules are utilized in the Elementary Statistics course of the K-MOOC.
