FYI COBOL is not batch only. It processes most ATM transactions.
In order to work with real time transactions it uses a product called CICS.

IBM has some new resources for learning COBOL
COBOL Developer Site
Guide to COBOL Education

There is also a free course provided by the Open Mainframe Project.
Scroll down to providers to see a link to sign up for the course through IBM

I signed up for the Open Mainframe course to refresh my memory on COBOL. I took a course on it a long time ago, but have not used it much since then.
