I teach a course in Software Engineering that uses Rails. This is at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA.
We have been using https://gorails.com as a resource for the students and they absolutely love it. The videos are clear and constantly being updated. Concepts are really well explained.
Recently they put up a brand new resource for beginners: Learn Ruby on Rails for Beginners course specifically for people first learning rails.
