I have been learning ML for sometime now and I have spent some time on finding what are some of the good resources for ML.
For Beginners I would say if you look beyond beginners section you might be overwhelmed by the amount of content. Just relax and eat it bit by bit. This is not a race.
My most visited page was random copied resource list on Machine Learning. As now I have some idea about what all the links are about I will try to reorganize the page with time(Possibly subcategorize).
Prerequisites
 Programming
Before starting I would recommend to learn some programming which also supports Numerical operations like matrix multiplications or basic numerical operations like matrix decompositions etc(Do not worry if you dont know these terms, learn to program and focus on that). I would suggest to learn Python with libraries called Numpy and Scipy. Other alternatives are Matlab/Octave/R. For C++ Armadillo is a great option which seems promising to me.
 AlgorithmsKnowing basic algorithms is essential. It also help you implement ideas to programs. Any algorithms course would be enough. There are few at coursera. Any one of the 2nd or 3rd set is good enough.
Set 1: Algorithmic Thinking
Set 2: Algorithms, Part I & Part II by robert sedgewick(Princeton) at Coursera
Set 3: Algorithms: Design and Analysis, Part 1 & Part 2 by tim roughgarden(Stanford) at Coursera
 Calculus
Calculus is very very essential prerequisite to Machine Learning. You can always come back for lookups. Multivariable Calculus by MIT OCW
Courses at Coursera
https://www.coursera.org/course/m2o2c2
https://www.coursera.org/learn/calculus1
https://www.coursera.org/course/sequence
 ProbabilityAnyone of the three should be good enough. You can always come back for lookups.
Probability Primer by Mathematical Monk at Youtube
Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability by MIT OCW
Machine Learning Lectures:
Beginners
 Machine Learning Course by Andrew Ng at Coursera
Thinking about what should be the first course in ML. The only course that comes to my mind is Machine Learning Course by Andrew Ng at Coursera. Practically no prerequisites(maybe Calculus). I highly recommend doing the programming exercises. Keeps your interests going. Not too mathematical. There is also a very short tutorial on Octave/Matlab(Just enough for doing Homeworks).
 Linear Algebra Course by Gilbert Strang
(I believe the best on internet)
We also need to understand about spaces. This is a good place to get the intuition about vector spaces. Video Lectures accompanies a text book. I would also like to suggest lecture notes by vandenberge (pdf) which are great for implementing various matrix factorizations as recursive solution.
 Learning from Data by Abu Mostafa at Caltech
Course is more detailed than ML by Andrew Ng at Coursera. Very clear explanation of the content. Video Lectures accompanies a textbook.
 Linear and Integer Programming by Sriram Sankaranarayanan at Coursera/UoColorado
To start getting a flavour of optimization this is an excellent place to start. This also shows the advantage of abstraction in solving problem.
Beginners++
 Machine Learning by Andrew Ng at Stanford SEE
This is a longer version of classroom course taught by Andrew Ng at Stanford. This course covers a lot of topics not covered in above courses. This courses accompanies an excellent set of lecture notes(Highly recommended). see lecture notes because sometimes lectures are not clearly explained but still is good for introductory ML.
 Probabilistic Graphical Models by Daphne Koller at Coursera
http://openclassroom.stanford.edu/MainFolder/CoursePage.php?course=ProbabilisticGraphicalModels
This course is like marriage of Probability and Graph Theory which is a significant chunk in Machine Learning. It involves efficient inference methods and how graphs help us. The programming assignments are not very easy like previous courses. This is widely used in NLP and Computer Vision.
 Machine learning Lectures by Mathematical Monk
If wondering who is he, then visit http://www.dam.brown.edu/people/jmiller/teaching.html
This is a course covering a lot of methods similar to Machine Learning Course by Andrew Ng. But the methods covered are wider(Also more probabilistic) than Andrew Ng's ML course.
 Introduction to ML This and This by Alex Smola 10701 at CMU
This is a foundation course for PhD students.
 Scalable Machine Learning by Alex Smola
http://alex.smola.org/teaching/berkeley2012/
This course deals with Scalablity issues and jargons in Machine Learning. It is also good for Statistics, Graphical Models, Recommender Systems, Kernels. This course should be complemented with a practical Project considering Scalability issues.
 Introduction to Recommender Systems
Not too difficult course but the whole course is on recommender Systems.
 Machine Learning By Pedro Domingos at Coursera/UoW
This course also covers lot of topics well explained. This could be done independently(Worth considering atleast for the topics not covered in previous course)
 Mining Massive Data Sets by Jure Leskovec at Coursera/Stanford
Deals with scalability issues of ML/Datamining.
 Neural Networks for Machine Learning by Geoffrey Hinton
Great introductory course to Neural Network. This course has included all the recent advanced in NNs. At the end of the course it might get difficult to understand. You might need to complement the end of the course with some ML text on inference(including approximate inference).
 Deep Learning by Yann Lecunn
Deep Learning course dealing with practicality. Doing work on GPU etc.
 Neural Networks by Hugo Larochelle
This is a fast paced course in Neural Networks. Great if you have some background of bits and pieces of NN/Inference/Graphical Models.
