What are good resources for a beginning photographer?

We just upgraded to a DSLR (a Canon T2i Rebel) Since I am used to a point-and-shoot, I have no idea what settings mean what and how to use them. What are some good resources for learning how to shoot photos with a DSLR? It would be nice if the articles/books were written specifically for people going from a point-and-shoot to a DSLR.

John Greengo's course in creativeLIVE is fantastic for beginners. It will teach you the fundamentals of photography (with bias toward DSLR cameras) - from camera control to image composition. It is long (a few hours of watch) but excellent and thorough.

The same instructor also gave intro courses for specific cameras:

Canon T2i
Nikon D3100
Canon 60D
Nikon D7000
