Project Description

Create a 1-min Introduction video for your very own Skillshare classes.


The project for this class is to create a 1-min Introduction video for your very own Skillshare classes. If you haven't created a draft of your class listing yet, start here www.skillshare.com/teach. Introduction videos should include the following:

  • An opener - a simple salutation or possibly a "hook" to get the attention of viewers
  • Brief biography - let people know who you are and why you are qualified to teach this subject
  • Clear statement about what will be taught
  • Explanation of the project assignment deliverable

Keep in mind the qualities of a good introduction video. It should be engaging, but above all understandable. Clarity is the key.


Completed videos should be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo, and a link should be posted in the project gallery for feedback.


Check out these examples of screencapture Introduction Videos: Example 1 Example 2.
