Somehow I missed this awesome looking site when it popped up over a year ago, but it’s never to late to share what I’ve learned.
Skillshare is a collaborative learning site. You sign up and choose your areas of interest. After that you can find classes being taught in your area and if you want you can even teach your own classes! From the about page:
Skillshare is a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone. We believe that everyone has something they want to learn and something they can teach to others. This means our communities are really the greatest universities. Our platform helps make the exchange of knowledge easy, enriching, and fun.
Topics include everything from cooking to technology to interior design. I think this is going to be a great place for me to find workshops in my area on topics I wouldn’t normally learn about in library continuing education. I haven’t signed up to teach (or learn) anything yet, but I’m going to be exploring this site more thoroughly over the next couple of months.
