I've taken a number of courses with Library Juice and had really good
learning experiences.

The series on XML and RDF based systems is excellent:

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/certificate-xml-rdf.php

As are the courses on metadata design and implementation:

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/105-metadata-design.php
http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/106-metadata-implementation.php

The time commitment is substantial, but the instructors have been very
flexible about turning in assignments after the deadlines.
