About This Class

[Thanks to everyone who enrolled and watched the class, created a project or left a review... you helped make this the 6th highest trending class on Skillshare... thank you!]

On Monday, 22nd August, Skillshare changed their "trending algorithm"... the way they decide which classes rank at the top of their category pages.

We created this class within 24 hours, based on our interpretation of what happened to classes and what we expected Skillshare to do. Our opinions haven't been endorsed by Skillshare, but we think we have a good idea of what changed and why

If you want to know how the Trending algorithm changed, which classes the change affected and what you can do to adapt, this class is for you! :-)

Good to know you are on top of things. Very interesting how they modified the Trending Score, yet perhaps it will translate into better quality for the students. Thanks for the info.
