Skritter - really nice team behind it too. Though it works better with a graphic tablet (as do most forms of online character writing practice).

I've found that nciku.com is a great place to do learn characters and see how they are formed stroke by stroke.

What about pinyin... I have absolutely no idea how people get the pinyin just by listening to the words. You can say I'm not even a novice in pinyin.

Skritter, as mentioned above, is definitely a great place to learn how to write. If you want to integrate this writing practice with actual lessons, then ChinesePod itself has a Skritter add-on that lets you practice the vocab within that lesson.

For an introduction to Chinese characters, then there are videos on Youtube (disorganized, though) or on Ninhao, where there is a 20 lesson course.

Once you get the basics, there are also lots of flashcard applications that will help you memorize these characters - like easychinesecharacters

hope this helps

Skritter is very good but I wish it would have audio that names each stroke that goes into the character as each stroke appears in order.
