11 Online Learning websites that you should check out

Planning start something new in this year? You can start to learn online now. Online education is gaining popularity over the last few years, as it should.

I have tried few of them last year and will share my experience with them in this post. Since I am a software developer we are going to focus on the materials related to it.

So, here is a list of 15 sites that you should visit before you make you make your choice. I have not used much on all of them, but worth a spending some time.

The italic  text below the title are taken from the respective sites. The order of names are arbitrary and does not carry any significance.

  1. So, what happened to sites 8-11?

  2. Learnstreet is amazing to start wit!!

  3. No Udacity.com? this does not seem right…

  4. Great List and thanks for Code School mention…

  5. Great start to a list. There are lots more that are available however. We have an article that lists 50 – some of the ones listed above are on our list as well. http://newsroom.opencolleges.edu.au/features/free-online-courses-50-sites-to-get-educated-for-free/

  6. I am basically not a programmer and I am comparatively new to Java technology , so I was wondering what all topics should be covered up if i have to start java from the start and has any one

    studied or got any info regarding this 6 week java training online course http://www.wiziq.com/course/12145-the-6-week-complete-java-primer-with-training-certificate and should we also have knowledge of C language before we further move on to Advance Java topics??

  7. recently, I heard about a website named Tyoosis for online learning.

  8. Codecademy.com doesn’t teach Java I wonder why it’s on your list!

    That aside, I’ve used it a lot and it is a rather spiffing and fun way to learn scripting languages :)

  9. WIZIQ is doing a great work in Java Training. It provides complete java training in 60 Hours.

  10. Nice list, thanks a lot for sharing. Greetings!!!!!

  11. I am an E&C Engineer but wanna start learning JAVA. Not sure how to go about it. Some of these websites i checked out, offer free courses on JAVASCRIPT. Any Suggestions??

  12. You missed out Programmr ( http://www.programmr.com )

    Has over 1000+ interactive Java exercises for free ..

  13. very nice. for more java examples visit java2novice.com site

  14. you have the best collection of the sites which is more helpful and thanks for sharing.
    best android training institute in bangalore

  15. I like the list, but I would add LearnToProgram.tv to the list. I think they have a great selection of coding and programming courses.

  16. It’s 2014. Java hasn’t been relevant since 2004.

    • I can only assume you’re a troll or just extraordinarily ignorant. Java has regularly been in the top 5 most desired programing languages. Java will probably always be in high demand given it’s versatility, especially now with Android development.

    • hmm..you are irrelevant…java is and always will be the language that scales coz of its JVM….maybe youre just another noob of a 14 year old basement coder who doesnt know the fact that even Twitter switched from just plain old Ruby to a combination of erlang, Java and ruby when it came to scaling an application to the size that you wouldnt have dreamt of….there are programming languages that utilise the power of the JVM….open your eyes, grow up

  17. I like your selection. Most of them are really top leading and offer quality education. One might want to check this article and expand the knowledge in this area http://www.onlinecultus.com/free-education-online-resources/

  18. amazing! i have some knowledge in java as i attended a local certification classses. im still struggling to learn java web development. hopefully these website will teach me to lean! :)

  19. Your article is really more informative. i attended the classes and searched more eBooks to learn web designing, i finally found your article. PeepCode is good website, have a complete note about the web designing.thank you for your article. keep on writing.

    a couple of more helpful sites:
    https://www.edx.org
    http://www.w3schools.com/

  31. Codecademy! I learned Python from it and started javascript. Love it!

  32. Your pop up “Do you want to know how to develop your skillset and become a …”

    is annoying becuase it doesn’t scroll well and over fills the screen
    puts your wanting contact info above all else
    ignores the fact visitors are interested in WIIFT = whats in it for them

    your plugging being a guru in the business but apparently don’t understand the first thing about site vistors and their motivations

  33. Other web site I would check is http://jwork.org/learn/ from jWork.ORG. It gives interactive tutorials on programming using Jython, Python and SCaVis math program

  34. My choice – http://www.codeacademy.com, it’s one of the best to start learning from the begging. Also I liked http://www.quizful.com, there is a lot of java and web coding puzzels to solve, helped me a lot to refresh my mind and prepare for interview.

  35. if anyone interested in learning c++ ,learncpp is an excellent online tutorial to learn it.Alex allain is its expert .Its amazing as it clears all concepts.
    thanks

  36. I really like Coursera and Khan Academy. Especially Khan Academy is using gamification to extend and deepen learning experience.

    Regarding Java programming and related technologies is often use http://farenda.com which has many nice examples.

  37. I really love Khan Academy and how they have applied gamification to enhance learning.

  38. I love this guyz, you have added to a useful list, thank you much appreciated, this will make our world a better world through code development
