    KhanAcademy:
    The best by far for pre-collegiate courses. I would say K-12 but I get the feeling that term is on the path to becoming obsolete, and KA extends beyond just the material you get in the traditional K-12 curriculum.

    Many of the higher level online courses (ex edX, and Udacity) even suggest KA courses as pre-requisites for topics that require them (ex calculus for an algorithms course).

    Coursera & Udacity:
    Get a tie for directed college level courses. If you like the more structured schedules and piecemeal exercises then you’d probably prefer Coursera. If you like to work at your own pace or in sprints then Udacity would be the better choice.

    AcademicEarth:
    For traditional college course lectures. The posted materials consist of traditional lecture videos and class materials from many of the top colleges. Incl Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, etc.

    edX:
    A partnership between Harvard and MIT to provide an online environment for web-based learning. The courses are free. They also currently offer certificates for mastery/completion but plan to charge for them in the future.
