Where can I find online computer courses?

I am searching for a place where I can take online computer courses. Working at my current job has been quite challenging since I have basic skills and knowledge of computers. My understanding of computers doesn’t extend beyond performing primary functions such as opening a folder, writing a document, and of course accessing the internet. I am in particular trouble with Excel which unfortunately makes up the bulk of my everyday tasks. Due to work duties, I am looking for online distance learning courses in computer. Which online learning center offers computer courses?
