Coursera has collected a huge number of classes from many elite universities, lead by Stanford. The format may not be always optimal for online teaching, but the quantity, and brand names, are there.

Udacity has nice custom classes, but it will require a breakthrough
("revolution") to make such custom method compete with "classic"
("evolution") recordings from existing universities.

edX is similar to Coursera, just a smaller "club" of MIT, Harvard, Berlekey, etc.

Common for Udacity and edX is that they are using YouTube for storing videos. Coursers appears to have a custom storage.

In any case, this are all fascinating resources for learning.
