Checkmate! Online Chess Tutorial

Chess, the game of kings, has always escaped me. I have tried to play computer chess several times, and even on the easy-peasy levels, I am always soundly thrashed in short order; and yet the game still holds a kind of mysterious appeal to me. I had some renewed hope then, when I discovered Chesscademy.com which offers not only the ability to play online against a computer opponent, but gives insight into what the heck is actually going on. While you don't need to sign up (free) to use the site, doing so allows you to track your progress and so on. You will learn with video examples, and interactive games sessions. 

Note the site is Chesscademy.com, not Chessacademy.com - which the homepage for chess camps for kids.
