I don't know about you, but If I'm trying to learn something new, I only seem to benefit from watching a video, and then doing lab-type exercises to practice what the video was demonstrating;

google was my friend here, and i searched "free SQL Server online training"

found an online blog as an example,where someone has put up a dozen or so videos:
http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/03/01/free-sql-server-training-videos-and-other-good-data-tutorial-pointers.aspx.
There were lots of other examples out there.

personally, I find this site to be one of the best learning resources in existence.

Every day I find forum posts that interest me, copy and paste the code to SSMS, and then build a potential solution.
It's the actual thinking about the issue, and trying to build a strategy to solve the problem that is the #1benefit for me.
I often post my suggested solution, but most especially, I compare it to what other people have posted. There's more than one way to resolve any issue, and you learn from how other people tackle the same problem differently.

There are a whole lot of resources out there.

www.jumpstarttv.com - short (3-5 minute), specific how-to videos
http://channel9.msdn.com/Tags/ - videos on just about everything microsoft. Over 200 on SQL Server 2008 alone.
www.sqlpass.org - the Official Professional Association of SQL Server web site. It has some resources which include Virtual Chapter user groups that meet monthly and more are constantly being added. Check out the upcoming 24 hours of PASS.
Quest Software Webcasts - free webcasts on SQL Server and some on Quest products but many general SQL Server ones. Check out Quest Connect
SQLServerPedia - has video podcasts as well.
This site has some videos as well.

I'm sure there are others as well. Good luck.
