Skillshare is a membership-based, online platform where millions of students in 180 countries around the world can take courses on topics ranging from business to photography. This affordable marketplace for learning allows teachers to earn income by sharing their expertise and allows students to acquire and develop skills for self-improvement and career growth.

Many other online education solutions resemble traditional college courses in structure and duration and are closed platforms that only allow “trained” teachers to publish courses. Skillshare’s philosophy that everyone has something to teach differentiates the online video platform open, allowing anyone to sign up and teach a class.
