DUOLINGO https://www.duolingo.com/
Duolingo is a great and easy to navigate tool for lanugage learning. Spanish, French & Italian might be the most popular but that also have Swahili, Chinese, Russian and so much more.  What makes the site so great is the way they integrate audio, written and visual learning methods. I enjoy the little motivation tools they use which makes it seem sort of like a game. There is paid upgraded version but you can still get great lessons with the free version. They also have a mobile app.

KHAN ACADEMY https://www.khanacademy.org/
I came across Khan when I was homeschooling. I was totally lost with my son's math work. Khan came in so handy. Various mini lectures on numerous topics, feels like a private tutoring sessions. The videos are short and striaght to the point which is great on preventing people from getting bored.

COURSERA https://www.coursera.org/
Coursera large selection of college courses on a variety of subjects. Some of these courses have the option to get a certificate of completion once you finish and pass the course. This is very much set up like a structed classroom with reading lists, "homework" and group discussions. Coursera is my favorite but I don't want to pass up mentioning Udemy & Edx.

CODECADEMY https://www.codecademy.com/
This one is new to me but I think it's a great site to learn some of the basics of computer programming. Codecademy has lessons on CSS, Ruby, PHP, Java, HTML, and more. Everything is done within the site itself. No need to download anything which I love.

It's a new year don't hesitate to learn something new!
