Beginning on October 6, 2010, O’Reilly will offer a free 10-week HTML5 mobile course. The live sessions will be held each Tuesday at 3PM Pacific Time. It appears you can download the sessions at a later point but there will be a fee for the download.
Here’s an overview of what the instructor notes you will learn during the course:
- Build your own Twitter App with these technologies
- Create apps that detect the orientation of mobile devices
- Use geolocation and maps in a location-based app
- Enable mobile users to use your app offline
- Use HTML5 web forms to create an address book app

You should have some basic knowledge of CSS and HTML for the course. They also recommend that you are on a Mac but you can participate if you use a PC or Linux.
