I've been making websites since 1997, when I set up my first GeoCities site learning out of the HTML for Dummies Quick Reference. Sadly, my skills plateaued around when I was graduating college in 2008. I've got seven days of free time coming up in a sort of work mini-sabbatical... help me get up to date! [more inside]

Help me organize boat-loads of data in a well-designed, user-friendly way! I'm making a website for an organization with a very comprehensive and interesting audio archive (say, 1500 items). I'm trying to find a way to represent the archive (about 24 items at a time, per page) in a visually easy, comprehensible way. [more inside]
Web Design Nerds: Is there a common name for off-site link icons? What are the best examples and uses of them? The best example I can think of is the square with an arrow next to Wikipedia's external links.

I've been asked to build a web site for a company that is offering online courses--the kind where you sign up and there is a series of steps one has to complete, not the kind where it's just an archive of study material. People pay, register, complete weekly assignments, etc. I'm looking for a) good examples of sites that do this; b) good examples of sites that market this (ie, not as concerned about the "assignments/courses" aspects as the "why you should study with us" and "look how we offer this stuff up" aspects); c) feedback from anyone who has taken such a course and has opinions on what worked/didn't work well regarding it. Thanks!
