There is been an influx of options for online courses these days and many of them are free and from leading universities around the world.
The courses cover a wide range of subjects but there have been a few related to art, graphic design, game theory, game design, video game design, writing, etc that might be of interest as a group
It's kind of cool to be able to take a free course from MIT, Harvard, Yale and other schools
Games without Chance: Combinatorial Game Theory from Georgia Institute of Technology
Live!: A History of Art for Artists, Animators and Gamers from CAL Arts
Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative from Vanderbuilt
MIT for awhile has posted all their courses online at
Not an MOOC but people can post courses, some are free some are for a fee, there are a whole series on video game design
Has a course there "Brief Free Introduction to Game Design"

Thank you for providing this list.
I took the Couresa course for Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative from Vanderbuilt.
It was an English class. Do not go into it expecting to know how to make a game - or how to learn how to make a game. I knew it was an English class, which just happened to take place in a game, and it was great for me.
The teacher is amazing, his knowledge of literature it phenomenal, and his personality great. He has a great love of gaming, but is no game designer.
I highly recommend the class to anyone who loves MMORPGs, Tolkien, or Romantic literature. If you love all three, even better.
If I'm stressing the game design aspect, it is because it wasn't a class about game design. Sure, the final project had an option to make a game, but the heart of the class was literature. I don't want people to be disappointed (I wasn't, but since this was mentioned with other game design classes I just want to make sure no one goes into the class with misconceptions...) There was a lot of writing involved, but it wasn't really a class about writing either.
There was a lot of reading of some really wonderful works. Lots of poetry. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Spenser's Faerie Queene. And I hope they offer it again in the fall (you'll see why fall if you take it) for other people to take.
