Expanding your knowledge and learning new skills is critical to the success of professionals today. It is especially important for remote workers to keep up with fast-paced technology and industry developments.
While our in-house peers are force-fed training and workshops, it’s usually up to the remote worker to find and complete their own up-skilling opportunities.
Skillshare is an innovative online platform making that easier than ever before. The website offers bite-size online video tutorials with practical lessons you can use right away, from creating digital illustrations and improving your iPhone photos to DIY coding, marketing hacks, entrepreneurial motivation – even how to bake a cake.
The classes are created by people already working in their respective fields. They understand your need for useful real-world information, delivered in a fast and engaging way. So in as little as ten minutes, you could have a new skill to add to your repertoire, creating more possibilities in your work, and more opportunities for your career.
“We believe that everyone is creative, and that giving people tools to harness their creative power has the potential to change lives for the better. Not creativity defined as an artist but creativity defined as a mindset, as a mental toolkit, as a set of building blocks, as a way of solving problems, and as a means to live a more interesting life.” – Skillshare
CEO and Co-Founder Michael Karjanaprakorn says it was the modern-day need for collaborative and creative learning environments that inspired him to launch Skillshare in 2011. It has since grown to offer more than one million people access to over 4000 classes, delivered by real people around the world.
“Skillshare started with the powerful idea that anyone in the world can learn whatever they set their mind to,” says Michael. “It is about unlocking human potential so that anyone can find their next path in life, their passion, their next career.”
More lessons are being added daily and Skillshare is always looking for new industry professionals to share their craft – whatever that may be. Since its launch, Skillshare has paid more than $5.5 million to registered teachers, making teaching on Skillshare a great option for remote workers wanting a unique way to earn money from their experience and expertise.
By teaching the skills needed in tomorrow’s world, Skillshare empowers creators to pursue the work they love today.
