We have developed a new teaching tool based on mini-videos (videos of short duration) for self learning using electronic blackboard. These mini-videos cover the basic theory in Statistics of most of graduate courses.

This way of doing e-learning can be applied to other subjects and it is based on the philosophy of “I work (the lecturer)”, “You work” (the student) and is within the paradigm of European Higher Education Area (EHEA). It has several and relevant advantages for the lecturer and for the student.

The main advantages for the student are:
- He/she can choose the time, the place and the rhythm of learning.
- He/she has a comprehensive material.
- He/she can re-enter in the subject whenever he/she wants.
- He/she can prepare easily the continuous evaluation.
- There is a real possibility of distance learning.

The main advantages for the lecturer are:
- Planning can easily be done.
- The lecturer can be more proactive
- The lecturer has not got the sense of time oppression.
- It helps to strengthen the contact with the student.
- It helps the implementation of continuous evaluation.
- The coordination between theory and practice is optimal.
- There is a real possibility of distance learning.

The self learning mini-videos are the natural evolution of the recording of the theory class, although with a characteristic radically distinct: the short duration (5-10 minutes), so they can be easily handled in Internet and can be reproduced in any portable multimedia player or shared through Bluetooth.
