I did this myself last year and really enjoyed it.

Please note that these do not offer DEGREES; it is for the joy of learning alone.

Free Online College Courses Take Big Step Forward - Forbes
ex and coursera are starting to offer certifications on a per course basis or for completing a given sequence of courses. Those certs aren't yet very recognized but I think they will become recognized more and more.
In the meantime enjoy coursera and edx. I've done and/or audited a few courses there. Some were easy and some have been very, very hard. It can get very challenging especially if you register for classes that you're not "prepared" for Most coursera classes are at the intro level but there are a few hardcore ones in the programming and science/math categories.
