Perhaps you could target the students of the new the Australian 
Curriculum: Technologies and that would do for everyone else as well: 

The University of Adelaide developed an on-line training course for 
teachers. Perhaps there is something on open data and if not there 
should be?

ODI offer a 13 part series of online courses, with a  Creative Commons 
license: http://queensland.theodi.org/home/learning/courses/

I tried the first one "What is open data?", but all I got on my slow 
wireless link was "loading": 

Perhaps a more efficient implementation is needed.

I sat in on one of the sessions at Finance. There was a lot of useful 
content, but was not structured as a "course". However, that was some 
years ago and I expect more has been done.
