(Update: I’ve written a new Skillshare review for 2019, covering the changes they made in 2018)
It’s January 2018! We’ve been on Skillshare for almost two years, have taken many classes as students, and have taught dozens of our own classes. Here you can see when we joined…
We also run two of the most popular Facebook Groups dedicated to Skillshare on Facebook. (Feel free to join us at “Free, Premium Skillshare Classes” (promotions), “Skillshare Mastermind” (discussions), or both) 🙂
In our Skillshare review for 2018, we look at whether a Skillshare membership makes sense from the point of view of a student and a teacher…
Not many people know you can get a 100% free Skillshare account by going through the signup process, but not entering credit card details (watch our walkthrough video, here). With the free account, you can take any of the thousands of free classes at Skillshare, and redeem free access links to premium classes given out by teachers.
Getting a free account may make sense to you, or you could take advantage of the current “3 months for 99c” offer to become an immediate premium member which unlocks access to the full catalogue of 18,000 classes on Skillshare.
Teachers can earn money publishing their classes at Skillshare, which can be as short at 10 minutes, providing they teach a skill. In return, teachers earn a share of the Skillshare royalty pool, which is equivalent to roughly 5 cents per premium minute. It’s a great way to get started teaching online.
Note, you don’t have to be a premium member to teach on Skillshare, so getting a free account would also let you start teaching on Skillshare.
Good luck! 🙂
PS, there are legitimate ways to get a free, premium Skillshare account. If you’re interested in those, click here.
