Default Free VB.NET and OOP Video Tutorials

So far more than 30 hours!
Here are the links of free VB.Net Tutorials I found on the net. I'll update this post as I find more. They are in high enough quality (imagewise, content wise I loved them all, at least ones I watched so far).
Associate professor Joe Hummel's webcasts are great. About 30 hours...WoW! They are more like university lectures rather than simply showing how some things are done. You learn all the scientific basics of OOP, .Net framework and VB.Net syntax plus other important concepts like SQL, ADO.Net, exception handling, Windows Forms...etc. Sponsored by Microsoft.
Franklin's .Net Tutorials...well I didn't watch them yet.
MSDN VBTV. Form Microsoft, introducing some celebrities. Vb.Net Web Applications, Windows Applications and Data Access are main topics.
VB @ The Movies: Sponsored by Microsoft, created by http://www.3leaf.com/ These ones are focused on specific tasks in Vb.Net programming, they cover many important topics.

Joe Hummel's Modern Software Development Webcasts

Requires Registeration: No (but need to enter email address)

15 part series on OOP concept and developing with Visual Basic .NET. About 30 hours in total. Covers :
Session 1: Program Execution in the 21st Century
Session 2: OOP and Class Design
Session 3: Working with Classes and Class Libraries
Session 4: Windows Forms: What's New in GUI Programming
Session 5: Defensive Programming
Session 6: Databases (part 1 of 3)
Session 7: Databases (part 2 of 3)
Session 8: Interfaces
Session 9: Inheritance
Session 10: Databases (part 3 of 3)
Session 11: Component-based Programming
Session 12: Application Design and Deployment
Session 13: Distributed Programming: Remoting vs. Web services
Session 14: Concurrent Programming: Delegates and Multi-threading
Session 15: Software Engineering Today: Best practices and Patterns

These were live streams spread to 15 weeks schedule during this year. Still webcast records are provided free to watch. Sessions take about 2 hours each.
Each session begins by Power Point presentation, then along the lecture code examples are executed in Visual Studio .Net. During the training tutor takes breaks and answer questions once were asked live.
Concepts are told scientificaly, they are no good for you if you want to quickly learn stuff and write code rightaway. 30 hours..is something.

They are Windows Media Streams. No downloadable. Simply enter some name when webcast page asks you one and your email address.

I was unsure about putting this in here as this site is a great source of tutorials it's in Turkish. Almost all of you won't understand a thing. Yet they make video tutorials as well and they update very often (not all video tutorials). I watched ASP.Net MySQL integration video and I liked it a lot. There are some others like XML Web Services...etc.
Anyways, those of you who happen to know ( ) Turkish might check that out right away.

Codes Sources Visual Basic France

Requires Registeration: Yes
Parlez vous français? This site is in French and a part of big programming network. There are many resources, codes, tutorials and yes Video Tutorials !!!. They have begun making video tutorials recently, so not many there are, however very promising as it can be seen from first ones. Videos are in Windows Media streams, downloadable versions are available for a small fee of lifetime membership to site.
