Stat110[0] (Harvard) on EdX! The professor, Joe Blitzstein, is incredible. Easily one of the best classes I have ever taken.

I would recommend Harvard Stat 110 over MIT's probability courses - https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-to-probability (you can find full lectures on youtube and the book online)

I found the EdX course too rushed (assuming you don't pay for the verification to get lifetime access). I like Bliztstein, so I instead used his Youtube playlist [0]. It has his full lectures. Also, his book is free to view [1].
