A recent article by Julie Rasicot is about one of the websites that provide free math tutorial videos.  http://www.khanacademy.org/
By the way, the website videos are quite good in quality of explanation!

Some excerpts from the article:

"popularity is exploding as millions tune into its free videos, practice exercises and assessment tools."

"students can watch repeatedly in class or at home and pause if they need to"

"Recently hailed as revolutionary by Bill Gates, Google and..."

"Since Khan first posted math videos on YouTube to tutor his cousins in 2004, the former hedge fund analyst has expanded his video library to 2,400 lessons that include basic addition, advanced calculus, history and science. Users also can access exercises and track their progress."

"Khan acknowledges that his website is not a new idea. “We’re not the first people to put video online,” he said. “What’s different is we started off as a grass-roots, bottom-up thing, reaching students before we started going into the classroom.”"


===================================
MIT OpenCourseWare [mit.edu]. Among the very earliest adopters of free, open access to educational resources, MIT has been offering its materials to the public for nearly 10 years. Almost all MIT course content is available online, and while, like most of these resources, you don't get a degree or direct access to instructors, the quality of written and multimedia materials is first-rate.
Coursera [coursera.org]. This for-profit organization does offer its coursework for free, and it's good stuff. Classes last from 4 to 12 weeks and come from academic powerhouses like Penn, Stanford, Berkeley, Michigan, and Princeton. Though it's somewhat heavy on computer science classes, it does offer world history, economics, and more.
Academic Earth [academicearth.org]. Styling itself as an academic version of Hulu, this site collects freely available lectures and coursework from many different sources. Though it's not as narrowly focused as some sites, it does offer something for everyone and is well worth checking out. Note: It was recently acquired by Ampush Media, but hasn't seemed to change the availability of its materials.
iTunes U [apple.com]. It's not all free, but there's a vast amount of course materials available using the iTunes U app. Many schools use the app to build content for their students, and while most of them require a secure logon, some make some materials freely available to the public. Download the free app and browse around.
Khan Academy [khanacademy.org]. Though it's geared toward K-12 students, the Khan Academy videos and problems sets are rightly beloved by learners of all ages. Much of the content deals with math and science, but the site has branched out into economics and the humanities as well. It's well worth a look for anyone seeking a refresher or wanting to tackle a subject for the first time.
Textbook Revolution [textbookrevolution.org]. This site is run by students and is essentially a catalog of free online textbooks and course materials, including some mentioned above and many others that aren't. It's pretty bare-bones, but if you're looking for a good free textbook or learning plan, this is the place to go.
