Moodle.org is a great site which allows you to use their software to create online courses. This Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment is super cool! I did the ICTCert course in Moodle and it was really easy to use. There are tons of video tutorials in the following links if you want to learn how to use it.

Russell Stannard's Training Videos
Saturday, August 7, 2010
I was browsing through Rusell Stannard's wonderful site Teacher Training Videos and I found his video on www.languageguide.org and I loved it. I love languages myself, I'm a very visual learner and so this is an absolutely fantastic site and not only for English but for many other languages. It's so exciting to be able to see and hear lots of basic vocabulary in other languages. Really easy to use and wonderful visuals and graphic quality too and FREE!!!! God bless the internet!
I really like Visual Theasurus and I bought it myself as I find it really useful when preparing vocabulary related lessons or training session on how to teach vocab. I recently came across Visuwords and I love it! It's very similar to Visual Thesaurus but I find that this one offers more visual support thanks to the left handside bar with a list of explanations as to what each colour and line represent. Visual Thesaurus is nice in the sense that if you buy it then the application is in your pc although some options are only available online. Visuwords, I don't know whether you can buy it, but the best thing is that it is free so all you need is an internet connection.
Well, have fun exploring it!
