Conrad Albertson's insight:

A huge list of onine courses from a variety of different sources. Some are free, some are not. Some require registration. I haven't tried many of these sites (yet), so, do not register or pay for any site you do not personally feel comfortable with.

You can generally do a search on the sites and get a feel for them in advance. For example Udemy is a rather large site with a lot of recommendations.
