Skillshare just launched and I am excited for them. Skillshare’s mission is to flip the notion of traditional education on its head and democratize learning. They believe that anyone can be a teacher, and everyone has valuable knowledge and skills to share. I couldn’t agree more!
I think I might take this class on How To Make Chinese Dumplings or should I take Game Mechanics for Social Apps?
I joined earlier today, and I might take one of the cooking classes. I’m awful at cooking, and it would be fun to learn a new skill and meet new people.

This is brilliant. I wish they had it in Boston…

I think it’s a great idea with some great people like Michael behind it. However, I feel efforts like TradeSchool (www.tradeschool.ourgoods.org) – a barter based version of Skillshare is also a great model to follow . They had a chapter last year and another that is currently ongoing this year.

Great! I plan a similar project (picking knowledge) in Switzerland. Good to see this & to learn!

Nice. You should check out Instructables as well:

CommuniTeach is also similar. It emphasizes the idea of trading skills.

However, these sites don’t offer a live online learning experience. Livemind.com does.
