Video Based Learning.

Udacity [www.udacity.com] and edX [www.edx.org] have collaborated with companies or universities to develop some of their course content, where other sites such as Udemy [www.udemy.com] or Skillshare [www.skillshare.com] allow anyone to become an instructor, develop their course, and post it to their site for purchase.

Additional Sites: Coursera.com, MediaBistro.com, Lynda.com

Learning to Code

If you’re looking to hone your coder skills, there are many options to find courses specific to helping you learn to code. Code School [https://www.codeschool.com/] has created a unique way of learning by adding entertaining content and a sense of gaming to their courses.  Other sites include Code Academy [http://www.codeacdemy.com/], Free Code Camp [https://www.freecodecamp.com/] or W3Schools [https://www.w3schools.com/html/default.asp].


Another great way to fit in learning is to use an APP. iTunes U [https://itunesu.itunes.apple.com/coursemanager/] has one of the best collection of free courses out there. They offer a varied mix of courses from a standalone class to a series of courses about a topic. You will find that much of the content is from actual Universities and many of the courses include lecture notes and homework.
