There are two excellent places. The one from Google is http://www.powersearchingwithgoogle.com/course. It comes with downloadable support material.

Then there is an excellent one by Lisa Louise Cooke especially for genealogy done for RootsMagic at http://www.rootsmagic.com/webinars/. It is Webinar 16. These are all free.
