In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

The course is structured so that you will move up the ladder of necessary topics. First, the course builds your foundation on main financial statements: The Balance Sheet, The Income Statement, The Cash Flow Statement and The Statement of Stakeholder’s Equity. Then, in the second part, it shows how to extract more information from these financial statements using Ratio Analysis. It covers main ratios such as Profitability, Liquidity, Working capital ratios, Interest coverage, Leverage, Valuation ratios, Operating returns ratios and shows how to calculate them and how to use them to interpret financial results. We will also discuss main factors to consider before making any decisions about the performance. All these topics are explained through a comprehensive example of a fictitious company that I have created to make it easier for you to understand and remember. Also, you will get a full summary of the ratios and their interpretation which will make it easier for you to learn from a single source. Finally, you will get a total of 40 multiple choice questions designed by me to test your knowledge on covered material.
