You don’t have to have a training background to take advantage of this opportunity, you just have to have the desire to share what you know. With Skillshare you can set up a local or virtual (they call it a Hybrid) workshop in your area of expertise. You set the price of each class and Skillshare keeps a small percentage for their assistance in the facilitation of your class.
Skillshare has the following categories for classes:
- Creative Arts
- Culinary Arts
Some of the classes are VERY creative and unique. How about a class in Sneakerology (yes sneakerology)…how to design and market your own sneaker concept! The teacher, Elliott Curtis, former Carnegie Mellon student who has taken “sneakers” to another level, actually has 1053 students enrolled and ready to take his class on September 10, 2012. At $10.00 per person after Skillshare’s 15% fee, Elliott will receive $8,950.50 for Five Week Class!
They do not have a Better Business Bureau rating (that we could find), however, they have excellent online reviews and some pretty “heavy-hitters” offering classes. This sounds fun and has the potential to be pretty lucrative!

Share your real-world skills
Facilitate a class that your students will leave with concrete skills, whether they’re cooking fried chicken or making their first wireframe.
Connect with your students before, during, and after class in your own online classroom. Share resources, give feedback, and answer questions.
