This is an amazing course that combines both: Computer Science Principles, Python Progamming Language Basics, Data Structures, and real world problems. There is an open source text book available, lecture notes, and the added material is the Video Lectures. Easy to understand and follow. Divided into lectures, covering the whole course.

Technical Remarks:

The only challenge I faced is the large vido file size. I never watched any of the lectures online. Had to download them all, and watch them. Other than that, technical requirements are all satisfied within any operating system. Challenge is only the bandwidth.
