I've spent the last years as a travelling consultant for major US companies and universities. My experiences are across a broad array of technologies and requirements, and now I'm here to help you get going.
All feedback is most appreciated; I am willing to consider specific subject matters and am working on many topics for publication in the near future.

Get started using the free Oracle Express Edition database, SQL Developer, and TOAD in this beginner's walkthrough.
Once complete, you'll have a fully functioning database and be able to connect to a sample schema, view its objects, and examine the data held within.
This boot camp style course gives you the very basics needed (in just under 2 hours!) to get your foot in the door - whether you're an application developer who's just been christened App DBA, or you're a report developer who'd like to get your own sandbox together to play.
Best of all, we're using FREE tools!
Did I mention it's free!?
Course is a great walkthrough of the installation and startup for Oracle, SQL Developer, and Toad.
While I understand that this is a "basic intro" course I expected a bit more detail based on the course description. For example, as others have commented, the instructor makes references to "schema" without explaining what a schema is. Perhaps I am being too harsh since I already have a bit of db experience (Oracle, Informix, MySQL) but the lack of content that I would expect from a basic intro course makes me suspect that any higher level courses would also be lacking in useful content.
The course content is good for beginers to start with Oracle. Very useful
Very well presented and to the point.... thx
I thought they have more examples of using oracle
