Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) is a great application built by University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). What is SOCR?
The aims of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) are to design, validate and freely disseminate knowledge. Our Resource specifically provides portable online aids for probability and statistics education, technology based instruction and statistical computing. SOCR tools and resources include a repository of interactive applets, computational and graphing tools, instructional and course materials.

What are the main SOCR Components?
The core SOCR educational and computational components include: Distributions (interactive graphs and calculators), Experiments (virtual computer-generated analogs of popular games and processes), Analyses (collection of common web-accessible tools for statistical data analysis), Games (interfaces and simulations to real-life processes), Modeler (tools for distribution, polynomial and spectral model-fitting and simulation), Graphs, Plots and Charts (comprehensive web-based tools for exploratory data analysis), Additional Tools (other statistical tools and resources), SOCR Wiki (collaborative Wiki resource), Educational Materials and Hands-on Activities (varieties of SOCR educational materials), SOCR Statistical Consulting and Statistical Computing Libraries.


As its name suggests, SOCR is mainly for people learning statistics, for example, to fit a certain probability, to draw density graph of a selected distribution, etc. There are also limited financial applications as well,

Anyway, sharing it just in case some ppl need a portal to learn statistics. http://www.socr.ucla.edu/SOCR.html
