FamilySearch Learning Center: 

There’s a reason FamilySearch tops nearly every list we create here on Family History Daily–they offer the most extensive free genealogy site in the world. Their learning center is no less impressive. With a massive selection of quality courses on nearly every topic and location imaginable, you’re certain to find something of interest.

UK National Archives Family History: 

Dozens of informative, family history related podcasts are available to download free and to listen from the UK National Archives, ranging from beginner topics such as Tracing Scottish Ancestors and What Can You Learn from a DNA Test? to interest-specific talks such as Records of Bankruptcies in the National Archives and Sources for Tracing Agricultural Labourers.

Ancestry.com Learning Center: 

Most of us think of Ancestry as a paid resource, but they do offer a variety of helpful freebies, including a vast learning center. Some (but not all) of the webinars and resources place a focus on finding records on Ancestry.com but are still very helpful for general research.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars:

Legacy Family Tree offers anywhere from two to five free online webinars each month, with presentations from nationally known speakers including Megan Smolenyak, Maureen Taylor and many others. Topics range from genealogical case studies to DNA to using social networking tools such as Facebook and Google+ in your genealogy research. Archived webinars are available for 10 days if you can't make the live event. After that point you can purchase the archived webinar on CD.

SCGS Jamboree Extension Series:

Southern California Genealogical Society's popular Jamboree Extension Series provides free family history and genealogy educational webinar (web-based seminar) sessions for genealogists around the world. The live webinars are free to everyone; archived recordings are also available to members of SCGS.
