I'll be most fascinated to learn of your results, Jennison, so please
post a summary to the list if you receive offline responses and can
get permission.

While I see plenty of free seminars, and I see plenty of face-to-face
training options in this industry, I don't see too many elearning
courses, except some offered at UC Boulder, as I recall. and I don't
think those were self-taught; as I recall them, anyway, they
seemed more like distance learning classes conducted by a faculty member.

As I recall, WebAIM used to sell its training course on CD, but I
haven't seen anything offered like that for a while.

Maybe I'm missing the obvious at the moment. But it would be most
interesting to see self-taught elearning courses, constructed on
platforms accessible on both the front and back-ends, that would
serve as models for accessibility, in and of themselves. And that
means both for designers and developers.

Eagerly awaiting responses.
