Skillshare is a site that lists classes you can take and allows you to list classes you want to teach.
From the website, “Skillshare is a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone. We believe that everyone has something they’ve always wanted to learn, and something that they can teach to others. We’re here to make the exchange of knowledge easy, fun, and rewarding.”
The classes are divided into five categories and organized by skillsets. Add classes you’re interested in to your watchlist.
Anyone can sign up to teach a class. You develop your own class and set your own price. Skillshare keeps 15% and PayPal takes 3% of the remainder. You can create a pilot class to make sure there is enough interest in the class before picking a date and finding a venue.
