This seems rather interesting...interactive examples and all!

Garritan Launches Free, Interactive Online Orchestration Course

Multimedia, self-pacing course is based on Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Principles of Orchestration'

Announcing a new on-line course, based on 19th-century Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's lessons on the Principals of Orchestration. There will be 26 in-depth lessons covering melody, harmony and composition on a range of popular orchestral instruments, with interactive activities and feedback (see full details below).

During the course, 275 animated scores will be used to demonstrate composition techniques, while students can listen to embedded audio examples and experiment with MIDI files. At the end of the course, Garritan plan to announce a competition that allows the students to put their newly-learned skills to the test and have their work performed by a full (and real) symphony orchestra.
