Abstract: E-learning plays an important role in education as it supports online teaching via computer networks and provides educational services by utilising information technologies. This paper presents a case study describing the development of an Arabic language e-learning course in statistics. Under discussion are problems concerning e-learning in Arab countries with special focus on the difficulties of the application of e-learning in the Arabic world as well as designing an Arabic platform with its language and technical challenges. For the platform we have chosen a wiki that supports L A T E X for formulas and R to generate tables and figures as well as some interactivity. Our system, Arabic MM*Stat, can be found at .
