With the brief hiatus in studies over winter break, why not pick up a new skill in creative arts, culinary or even entrepreneurship?
Skillshare is an online, community based resource offering registration for in-class sessions on a number of topics. Search for classes by location; either zip code or city name. Classes are currently restricted to major cities, i.e. San Jose, San Francisco and Sacramento are the northern California locations.
Skillshare is a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone. We believe that everyone has valuable skills and knowledge to teach and the curiosity to keep learning new things. This means our neighborhoods, communities, and cities are really the world’s greatest universities. Our platform helps make the exchange of knowledge easy, enriching, and fun.
The cost and duration of each class varies. You can sign-up with your Facebook acount, or sign-up with your email account. The classes are scheduled for specific dates and locations, so make sure to mark your calendars.
You can even sign-up to teach a class. If you are hosting a class, this is a great way to market to a new audience. Keep in mind, this site is very socially progressive, and there are numerous links and options to connect with your Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin account. It is optional to use those accounts.
