What free learning resources do you use?

Here are some of my links:
Coursera: https://www.coursera.org/ for a myriad of free-to-enjoy Internet delivered courses. I highly recommend using their app for your mobile learning pleasure.

EDX https://www.edx.org/course also has an app, I haven't toyed around with it yet.

Open Culture: http://www.openculture.com/freeonlinecourses

Future Learn: https://www.futurelearn.com

Open2Study: https://www.open2study.com

In the near term, Lifehacker has provided a list of upcoming college-level courses: http://lifehacker.com/plan-your-free-online-education-at-lifehacker-u-fall-s-1728137402

I've had a few good experiences/courses with Coursera's "R" programming language MOOCs.  If you're willing to put in the hours and treat it like a real course it can be very helpful.
