Any recommendations for a grant writing course online?

I want to take a grant / proposal writing course online or at least learn a lot more about grant writing. Has anyone taken one or heard about one that is better than the rest? Is it something that is better taken in a classroom?

My stepmom learned how to write grants (and got paid for it) by joining AmeriCorps. They sent her to seminars and everything.

The Foundation Center in New York offers free, online class. I've heard they're pretty good and the Foundation Center is also a great resource for grant writers:

And I'd guess that having a proven record raising money is better than having a certificate. Could you get involved with an local non-profits and help write some grants for them?

Here are some free UWTV videos of lectures online from the University of Washington.

Yes, the Foundation Center is your friend. If you live near one, they also offer free seminars and workshops.

I teach grant writing as part of my job, albeit not in the US, and I have heard many good things about the Foundation Center's services from both those seeking funds and those who give them. I haven't experienced them myself though.
