Default best free online trainings

Okay,

You want to refresh or improve your ability to use common or upcoming tools & tricks of the trade.

What are some of the best online resources actuaries have used?
I'm aware of coursera(maybe not totally free, still very relevant) and datacamp(free to a point.). Khan Academy looks solid but mostly for primary school training and some college courses.

If you wanted to improve your skills with excel, r, python, sas, or data presentation skills in general, what are some of the better free resources available. i'm also interested in resources which train you how to derive insights from data.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Gareth Keenan

For R, my one and only recommendation for beginners is now R for Data Science.
