StataCorp will be offering sessions of NC-101, NC-151, NC-152, and NC-461.
The NetCourses are available on the Internet using a web-based system to
deliver lectures, problem sets, and solutions.  Course participants and
Stata course leaders interact through a bulletin board to discuss the
course and to ask and answer questions.

Here is a little more information about the upcoming NetCourses:
