    There are 11 topics and 120 sub-topics (and various specialties).

    All of the materials are free.

    Nice post. Not sure how much I'll use that link, but it's nice to know it's there if I need it.

    Coursera is another brilliant free resource for quality uni courses and for beginners/intermediate learning there is the Khan Academy

    I have not heard of Coursera, but it seems just as professional and educational as the courses provided by the MIT.
    The Khan Academy is also a good source, although I solely watch their YT videos.

    The difference between MIT OCW and Coursera is that you write exams on the work with Coursera and get a certificate of accomplishment
    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.
