If you've got time and a burning desire to learn programming, here's a fun link to check out: Computer Science: Free Courses (http://www.openculture.com/computer_science_free_courses).

The one that caught my eye was Intensive Introduction to Computer Science Using C, PHP, and JavaScript (http://www.extension.harvard.edu/openlearning/csci52/). I've wanted learn more about web programming, although I'd prefer to start with Python or Ruby on Rails.

Have you come across some cool tutorials and learning resources? Please share.

If your interest is in Computer Science, then the MIT lectures are interesting, starting with Lecture 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6U-i4gXkLM

Thanks for the post. The site looks rather interesting. Just to note that YouTube (or should I write Google here?) has similar project that has been around for about 2-3 years now.
They collaborate with universities all around the world:

You can find some amazing lectures there! And greatest value is that on some courses you actually can get anything: the lectures, the course materials... And it's the whole course not only a few lectures...

Don't forget Google Code University.

I learned quite a bit of Python from the video lectures there!
