This work presents a web-format framework for teaching and learning Statistics in the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC). UOC is an Open University with a virtual campus where both students and teachers interact, breaking time and distance constraints. The learning and teaching process is evolving with the information and communication technologies. These technologies facilitate the interaction between the student and the material through the resolution of exercises and the experimentation with simulated cases. Statistics is a transversal subject or tool used, at different levels and skills, in most of Higher School studies. In this sense, we propose a digital and navigable didactic framework that integrates the basic elements of the self-learning process and adapts the learning material to the student, according to his personal profile (career, previous knowledge, skills, behavior, etc). A tailor-made and oriented evolution implies an intelligent tracking of the student's actions. In this respect, we might say that this kind of activity allows either the student to learn significantly or the teacher to keep the process under control.
