This resource just launched today, and offers free registration for various courses related to creative arts. In particular, there will be training for digital photography and lighting for both photo and video which I thought might be of interest. The instructors are pro's in their various fields, and really know their stuff. The live classes are scheduled like an ordinary college class would be, so you can plan ahead to make sure and catch them. The amount of overlap between still photography and video, which uses the same fundamental principles of lenses and image sensors is pretty significant, so even courses focusing on still photography will be of benefit for beginners and experienced users alike. Here's a quick video introducing creativelive.com
The courses will also be available for purchase and download after they are broadcast, but even then the costs are massively reduced from what this type of training would ordinarily cost.
The first class of the Fundamentals of Digital Photography course today was essentially an orientation, though it was an excellent one, so if you jump in now you can still catch all of the good stuff. For free.
There is also an upcoming 3-day course on HDDSLR Cinema with Vincent Laforet which you may want to sign up for. Here's Vince's reel, if you aren't familiar with him.
