    Their computer science with python course made me feel like Penny from the big bang. Instructor obviously knew his stuff but I wouldn't say he was a great teacher.

    I wouldn't mind but I'd been tinkering with Python for a few years before doing it, and despite starting 3 times I've never completed it as work and kids seem to get in the way. :(

    MIT has Open Courseware which has courses on loads of different subjects, and with it being MIT they are very high quality as well.

    Not all of them are, some are incomplete or just contain slides etc.. but it is a very nice resource all the same.

    This is worth a look too, unlike the MIT site it only contains a few select courses:


    OP might have some interest in the three introduction to computer science courses.

    The full fat version of Andrew Ng's course is on there and the optimisation courses by Boyd are useful too for anyone interested in say machine learning.
