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.

This is a GREAT class. Brittni is the queen of DIY tutorials, and I feel like I just had a personal sit-down with her. I have been so afraid of tutorials in the past, but now I am looking forward to creating them! Thanks, Brittni!

The tips were simple and logical concepts that I felt like I should have probably known intuitively. But, the reality is that I did not know them intuitively, and the class was essential to my understanding of how to shoot, compile and present a DIY blog tutorial. It was well worth the price, and now my blog will have a completely revamped and polished appearance.

I love this class! :-) I learned a lot about tutorials. The ideas for my own tutorials are exploding in my head. And I can't wait to see, what my readers think about my new ideas for tutorials. Thank you, Brittni. :-)

The How-To on How-Tos was great--however, it was much more basic than I had expected. If you are a DIY blogger and have been blogging for less than 6 months or are struggling with getting your tutorials seen, then there will probably still be a lot of value for you in this class. But if you have more experience, you may find, like me, that you already learned most of the material for yourself. That said, Brittni is obviously a very successful blogger and a genius stylist. Her styling tips were wonderful and I already saw an improvement in my photos. Also, I appreciate the templates she provided for how to contact blogs/media for project submission. So, for $20, even if you have more experience, there are still some good gems. My complaint with the class is the lack of participation.

Brittni was around to answer questions for a few days, but as the instructor I would have expected her to check-in a bit more. I submitted my project about a week after the class started and have gotten no feedback. Of the hundred or so enrolled students, only 3 others started projects. No one has left any feedback, which was part of my reason for enrolling. Brittni of course can't make people participate, but it would have been helpful if she had checked-in, encouraged students to participate, or at least provided a deadline so it would be clear how long she would be available for feedback.
