I've compiled a Learn Kannada Resources based on my knowledge and digging through search engine results:
www.kannadakali.org - Banavasi Balaga - A one stop user friendly online resource for information on Kannada, Karnataka and Kannadigas.
Download Learn_Kannada.pdf - Covers basics of Kannada.
TotalKannada.com Tuitions - To lift your confidence about learning Kannada.
Will share few more resources in Part 2.
