This is a data acquisition portal that has been developed by Tufts University using the Open Geoportal. This is a pretty good looking data clearinghouse, and has geospatial data available for Virginia as well as internationally. I think that the best part about this portal is that it is clear, intuitive, and easy to use.
The remote sensing data acquisition turorial is provided by Peter Price for your use in the classroom. The limitations are that you cannot charge for the materials, must give proper credit for the source and provide feedback if any errors are encountered.

Jarlath O'Neil from the University of Vermost Spatial Analysis Lab created an online tutorial video showing how to download and use landsat data in ArcGIs 10. He also discusses how to prep the data as well as explaining various band combinations.
