MIT offers a great program where you can sign up for some of their most popular lectures and readings for free. I have learned some amazing things from these courses.

If you have a Kindle or e-reader many books and classics are now offered for free. We just finished reading the Count of Monte Cristo and there are so many books like Sherlock Holmes you can get with a click.
3. iTunes U
iTunes U is a specialized area of the Apple iTunes store that allows Higher Education institutions to make audio and visual content available for download. You can get tons of awesome courses on here.
TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. TED has amazing conferences, lectures and webinars on topics that you cannot even imagine, but are fascinating.
I am an avid reader and hate spending a ton of money on books and having to go to the library and have limits on my books. Book mooch is a great book sharing service where you can discuss books and have much less limits on books you take out!
You never have to stop learning. There are more and more free resources out there to enrich your mind and your life.
