To help you choose the right courses, Skillshare shows you an introductory video that the instructor has recorded, and shows you how many students are enrolled.
That means Skillshare is a GREAT deal if you’ve got a lot of time to commit to learning online. You could power through multiple courses, and even multiple courses on different topics if you want to learn a few things at once.
(For example, you could study photography, and also photo/video editing, creating a very comprehensive skill set that you could then use to start a freelance career!
You can also read reviews left by students who have gone through the course in the past!
The courses are in video format and tend to be very high quality (good sound quality, good camera work, etc.) and Skillshare classes are self-paced, meaning you watch the videos and complete the assignments and lessons whenever you want. Your progress is saved within each course so you can pick up where you left off each time you return.
Notable Skillshare instructors include Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, Guy Kawasaki, and many other teachers recognized as being at the top of their respective fields.
