Another super cool idea: New York-based Skillshare just launched, and it's setting out to "democratize learning." They believe that everyone has something they can teach someone else—knowledge, skills— and Skillshare is a place to share that learning. Browse classes, sign up, or offer to teach!
More about Skillshare:
We believe that people care more about real-world skills than antiquated accreditation systems. Our communities are filled with these people who are great at what they do, whether it's delivering a fantastic speech at a conference or baking a triple layer chocolate cake. Our vision is to unlock this knowledge and allow people to share their skills with those who want to learn them.
Class examples currently on the boards include:
- How To Travel Around the World Before You're 65
- So You Want To Start a Fashion Blog? Techniques for Beginners
- Photography: Off-Camera Flash 101
Right now Skillshare is only in New York, but San Francisco is coming soon. If you'd be interested in having Skillshare in your area, you can sign up and start a ground campaign!
