This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) has over 7000 users, from all levels of Moodle experience from absolute beginner to helpful expert (which makes for a lot of chatter in the discussion forums).

The online assignments are geared for beginners, with lots of supporting text and demonstration videos. This is a well-designed and comprehensive course that will help beginners and intermediate-level users learn about the features of Moodle 2.5.

A couple of us in CID are enrolled in this Moodle MOOC. You get digital badges as you progress through the activities, which are kind of fun and motivational.

Check it out!
