I want to share this site, thenewboston.com, which has many video tutorials including how to get started with electronics and many programming languages. I personally benefitted by learning Python from the 58 Python programming video tutorials! The Robotics and Electronics tutorials are very basic so they are perfect for beginners.
The programming tutorials are located on the left navigation pane under Programming
The electronics tutorials are located on the left navigation pane under Other > Robotics and Electronics
