High-profile editor Gaylord Fields is teaching an online editing class through MediaBistro titled "Grammar, Punctuation, and Meaning," starting February 25. The class meets between 9 and 10pm ET for four Mondays and costs $350. You can tell the instructor's got a sense of humor, because he ends his bio with this:

What's cool about this class is that you can live anywhere and get a nice thing to put in the Education section of your resume. The class includes posted lectures, assignments, and weekly chats for the class as a whole.
MediaBistro has a varied selection of other courses to check out, such as intermediate copy editing, intermediate PR, and how to pitch articles to magazines.
