I had an idea for "mini-courses" a while ago, and am most of the way through
a BTS one.  The general idea is much like yours -- structured coursework
with all the usual sorts of bits and pieces like review questions, etc etc. 
I wasn't thinking so much to run a 'class' on it, with everyone going
through together, but rather to do aim it more as "self-study" materials. 
But there's no reason why a bunch of people couldn't do their self-study all
at the same time, of course...

Personally, I think that discussing this in d-mentors would be more
on-topic, but if people think that d-mentors is too unfriendly, I'm OK with
doing stuff here for a while.
