Everything on this page is zero cost. There are plenty of commercial offerings that are great, but as I've not personally experienced many of them, I don't feel comfortable making any recommendations.
Not everyone can go to college, even community college, but structured learning is available to everyone through a bunch of avenues. A few of the ones that I strongly advocate are:
- Khan Academy. Great for getting your math and science skills back up to where they (maybe) were.
- MIT Open Courseware. Lecture notes, videos, and even exams from MIT. For example, EC.S06 - Practical Electronics might be an interesting course to take. Or maybe 6.071J - Introduction to Electronics, Signals, and Measurement.
- Analog Devices' Engineering University Program. A very extensive online set of courses with lab exercises. This has a very deep analog component given the company's long history.
- Coursera. Coursera is a powerhouse in online learning, partnering with a bunch of educational institutions. You can take a look at their electronics courses
- TU Delft Open Coursware. Open educational resources from one of the finest engineering schools in Europe. I believe all of them are in English.
- Video Calculus. A 55 episode lecture series for learning calculus from start to mostly finish. Each episode is about 10-20m long.
