You could also have a look at lynda.com that offers very good video tutorials on a lot of tech subjects, and also check Gale Courses. While normally paid services, many local public libraries provide full "subscriptions" as a digital service to patrons with a library card.

I have been told that Python is a good starting language for beginners. I have messed with Python a bit, and it is pretty easy to use. Also, there are zillions of libraries of functions available for it, so you can do a lot without really knowing much - just use the functions that are readily available.
