I agree about not using Excel for statistical analyses in research. I never do. That said, I see many colleagues using Excel and I cannot stop them. They listen politely then move on. With luck, all of the students will love computers, become expert at using them and can graduate out of Excel and into R. However, Excel has other uses and their new found skill in Excel will help them in other tasks. The problem in the original post was about teaching R to a bunch of students some of whom had never seen a computer or smart phone. To get them computer literate, programming,  and statistically savvy in one semester or even two seems a bit much to ask.
