CodeFilter: I am looking for online classes mainly in the area of web programming (PHP, MySQL, AJAX, etc.).

I need to brush up on my self taught skills. I am looking for something on the level of an actual coures, with assignments, deadlines, etc. (I don't necessarily like those things, but find I learn much better that way than self-paced from a book). Free or paid service is fine - I am mainly concerned with quality. I sort of like the courses and organization offered by, but I have no idea if they are good and credible? Any recommendations would be very much appreciated

I've had great results with the O'reilly School, they're primarily self-paced online lessons, but they really hammer it home, their slogan is something like "learning by doing and doing and doing" and they do offer a cluster of web programming classes (PHP, Perl, AJAX, etc).

Id like to see what others say too as I have been struggling with this for several years....
Lynda and O'reilly are insane when it comes to price....then again, there is always BitMe...snicker

Ed2Go. I've done three of their online programming classes including the one for PHP/MySQL, one on Java, and one on Perl. The courses are little over $100 with two lessons a week for 6 weeks. My cost was less ($89?) by enrolling through my local community college.
