In terms of online courses or filmed lectures, unfortunately there's not too many good ones around at the POL101 level. I will, however, strongly recommend Ian Shapiro's ongoing course "Power and Politics in Today's World" at Yale (Youtube link here), which gives an astonishingly thorough introduction to Western politics since 1989.

Coursera and edX have many courses on other aspects of politics, including comparative politics (US politics, Chinese politics, etc), international relations, political theory, security/terrorism studies, and methodology. These ones are particularly "meaty", in no particular order:

These are a small sample of the kinds of courses I was able to search up in just those two MOOC platforms (and there are others, like Futurelearn, iversity, etc). There's a lot more courses if you go to those platforms and do a keyword search (for example, I barely touched on the stuff there on US constitutional law). Best of all is that you can enroll in these for free (ie sign up and watch lecture videos).
