Coursera is a great online learning resource. It's currently free for all UofT students (until April 20, 2021). See here for details and how to set it up. Note that in general Coursera courses are mostly free to audit but if you want to access graded assignments or earn a course certificate, you will need to pay. The current Uoft access includes free course certificates if registered by February 28, 2021. Below are two Coursera specializations to get you started with Python and R.
In addition, Toronto Public Library (TPL) cardholders have free access to lynda.com, where you can find video courses on Python, R and many more. Following are a few courses that you may find useful. (Note: lynda.com was acquired by LinkedIn. To gain free access to the original lynda.com site, login via TPL access online.)
