Stumbled upon a great treasure chest the other day: Open courseware of MIT lectures FOR FREE!!! Imagine having access to some of the best and most innovative classes on anything from Aeronautics and Astronautics to Architecture to Civil and Environmental Engineering!
Course description says:

This practicum will engage students in a set of work groups designed to assist local community based institutions and people in shaping the policy and practices that will guide the redevelopment and rebuilding efforts in the city of New Orleans.
