A very nice series of short animations. Check out the membrane transport section and the lipids section.

Some more nice animations. These are longer and have explanations.

The Biology Project’s unit on cell membranes. This site contains an overview and a tutorial with 16 questions and answers.

Another tutorial. Some good images. Terrible mis-use of the term osmosis.
