Learn How to Create and Teach Your First Skillshare Class

By ·Community Manager at Skillshare

The education system for any given student is the school they go to. If you are the teacher, you are the education system for those students. You can change their world of learning immediately, if you choose to. We strive to bring curiosity, learning, and passion back into the classroom by empowering anybody to become a teacher.

We’ll walk you through picking a class topic you can teach, designing your first class, finding a venue, selecting a price, and marketing your class. We’ll also discuss best teaching practices as you set up your first curriculum and spill some secrets behind what we have in store down the road for Skillshare.
