Don't know about online class, but it seems to be based on a good book
and it is free:
http://www.apl.jhu.edu/~hall/java/Servlet-Tutorial/

Also I think in order to undersatnd JSP you should start with servlets,
so don't be discouraged that they write a lot about servlets even before JSP

And I would not worry if it says "it is now out of date".
In order to get the basic ideas - it would be fine - taht is usually the
steepest moment - you'll  then pick up the more recent developments

You could by reading
http://download.oracle.com/javaee/5/tutorial/doc/bnagx.html 
and  
http://download.oracle.com/javaee/5/tutorial/doc/bnahq.html
You could also look at the answers to past questions here at EE(this site).  There are thousands of them.  

If you want to just start writing code, then the easiest way to begin is to put a Tomcat on your desktop.  You can download it at
http://tomcat.apache.org/ 
When you have Tomcat installed(I presume that you have the JDK installed already), you can browse to
http://localhost:8080/   
This is Tomcat's home page. On that page is a link to  "JSP Examples"  Those are very good.
You can easily start creating your own JSP files. Just create a file named test.jsp and place it into the root folder of a pre-installed web app that comes with Tomcat. You could use the web app named ROOT. If you do place your test JSP there then browse to it using
http://localhost:8080/test.jsp 
This way you can start writing code right away. Tomcat will send you error messages if there are errors in your code. You can rewrite and then hit the browser's reload button to run again.

If you need help with anything, then just ask us here.
