I've created a brief, free audio-visual Introduction to Game Design class. It is primarily aimed at those who want to design video games (a much larger contingent than tabletoppers), but applies to TT as well. While many readers here already understand most of what I say, you might know someone who is just getting started in design who could benefit. URL: https://www.udemy.com/brief-free-introduction-to-game-design.... (Udemy is a site specializing in offering audio-visual courses.)

Who am I? I am retired from college teaching, and at the end of my time I taught video game design and production. I am also a published game designer and game design book author and blogger, and was recently a Guest of Honor at GenCon Indy 2013.

My YouTube channel "Game Design" hosts the "What You'll Discover" lecture from this course. http://youtu.be/VjU8qPU0bTE

(You may also be interested in recent blog posts, Video Wargame Conversions ffrom the Tabletop (http://boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/22884/video-wargame-conver...) and GenCon (and WBC) 2013 (http://boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/22633/gencon-and-wbc-2013).)

I am in the process of making longer courses that will not be free. Those who register for the free course will be notified when a new course is published.

I have been forced by a change in Udemy policy to slap a $9 charge on my free, brief game design class, but with a coupon you can take it for free. Use:BriefFreeIntro

or use this URL:

The BriefFreeIntro coupon code no longer works.
Any plans to create a new coupon code for this?

No, this will never be free in the future. (It was my first class, originally free for a time, and I made the mistake of including "free" in the title.)

I do have two classes free via coupons:
FREE "Prospering at Game Conventions and Conferences" Coupon ConventionsFree, URL:
https://www.udemy.com/game-conventions-and-conferences/?coup...

Free "Conceiving a New Game: Tips for Aspiring Designers". This is actually a compilation of some screencasts from my YouTube channel, rather than a formal class. This is just another way to make them available.
https://www.udemy.com/conceiving-a-new-game-tips/?couponCode...

The second is largely a compilation of videos that are on my (free) You Tube channel. http://youtube.com/LewGameDesign
