How Skillshare Is Transforming Education as We Know It

Skillshare is a startup that is changing the way we think about education. The company allows anyone to teach a class on their area of interest while getting paid. Right now classes are based on one of five disciplines: the creative arts, culinary arts, entrepreneurship, lifestyle and technology, so you can take a course in French cooking, or learn how to code PHP, or all of the above. Skillshare community manager Danya Cheskis-Gold says of their efforts, “The best learning experiences are meaningful and collaborative, and that happens when people learn together with others who share their passions and when teachers constantly improve.” What do you think? Is this something you would be interested in being a part of?
