What degree/trade is worth the student loans?

I've got a little money I'm thinking about turning into some classes/training for a serious career change. With education at such a high price, I would need to pick a career/trade that can pay off the loans I would need to complete. I'm looking at trades, skilled craftwork, 2-year degrees, and 4-year degrees. Got any suggestions? [more inside]

How Did You Learn What You Know About Computers/the Internet?

I am taking a brain-painful networking class (hint: it's all about the routers, baby!) and the studying is intense. It's hard, but I'm holding my own. I see questions here on AskMe that bring really cool answers from lots of folks, with a lot of repeat answerers, which leads me to ask, How Did You Learn What You Know About Computers/the Internet? Was it in school? Did you apprentice with someone who had m4d sk1lz? Did you teach yourself? Other?

Web Development 101

Some people at my work are asking for "web development" training. We are a nonprofit that gives away computers, and a part of their job is to understand basic software capabilities, to tell grantees about it. (The grantees are schools and non-profits.) The people I work with are not trainers, they just need to be more informed than the basic user. If you were going to teach web development basics to an audience of former junior high teachers and fundraisers, where would you start?
