An online educational site focusing on teaching life skill courses and where the teachers are regular people who teach other people what they know..
Skillshare was founded by Michael Karnjanaprakorn who’s main purpose is to change education back into learning.
“Education is what someone tells you to do. Learning is what you do for yourself. The traditional way of education forces square pegs into round holes. It’s a one-size-fits-all solution that forces people down a predetermined path. Our mission is simple. Reunite learning with education and make it accessible to every single person on this planet. Anyone can learn anything, at any age, at an affordable cost, anywhere in the world.”
Brilliant and simple, here’s what their media kit says:
