Here at WP Helpout we receive all sorts of WordPress requests. Most times if a client is interested to learn WordPress we have a few resources that we like to send them to. However, the best resource is “your need” which is the mother of all education. What you need to know in a particular instant about WordPress is what you should be looking for instead of watching WordPress tutorials that are not related to your need.
For example, if you just logged in inside of your WordPress dashboard and wonder how to make a page then simply go to YouTube and type in “how to make a WordPress page”, you will most likely find a video such as this one which will be practically walking you through your request on how to make a page. There are no better tutorials other than YouTube search requests because they are direct and to the point of what you need.
Having said that and putting YouTube aside here are also some other very good resources that you can consult:
