Course: Applied Social Network Analysis in Education

This is an interesting and largely open course that teaches social network analysis, applied in the context of education (though it is much more about social network analysis in general). It has quite comprehensive coverage, including ethical issues, and a practical focus on analyzing real data and understanding the implications. For teaching it relies on tools and a textbook that are only available to students of the course, but the background materials and teaching methods seem very useful in themselves: a good mashup of external resources and original content, nicely presented and well thought through. It's structured so that you can cherry pick topics that might be of interest: you don't need to take the whole course to find this useful. The textbook it uses can be found at or (really not cheap, but a lot can be got out of the course without referring to it).
