edX MITx has a great course for Ruby on Rails.

It is a good mix of theory, practice and homeworks. I took both of them and while I didnt manage to complete all tasks due to time constraints my Rails knowledge has significantly increased.

For Rails I highly recommend this course an the accompanying book

Hartl's Rails tutorial is comprehensive, but does not spend enough time explaining the underlying principles IMO. Writing a test for everything also muddies the water in that tutorial (which does not mean TDD is not good for you).
