PSA: Want to learn Game Design but don't know where to start? There are tons of free online courses out there
I was a heavy online courses user back on its day when Coursera, EdX and Udacity launched. Recently I revisited those sites to see if there was any new courses I could be interested in.

They are completely free and very easy to consume. If you are an aficionado and looking to get into game design, but don't know where to begin, these could be a nice starting point.
As a caveat, I can't vow for the quality of all of these courses. I checked out a couple of them and the quality differs quite a lot. Still, probably worth checking out.
