What kind of broadband connection were you planning on getting ?
If it's ADSL you'll probably have ~250Kbit/s upsteam maximum (don't know
about cable).  If you're going to have your users putting videos they've
created on your web server and inviting the rest of the world to view
them... well, the rest of the world may find itself waiting a long time
for your stuff to download.  A better option IMHO might be to rent an
offsite (virtual) server which will have much better connectivity. 
Maybe you can get a good deal for a community/charity/non-profit type
organization  (seem to remember some previous discussion on the list
mentioning a local ISP) ?

Sorry, can't offer any advice on training.
