Skillshare, the community marketplace that makes it easy for anyone to teach and take classes, announced today that they are expanding their presence to Portland.
As of today, any local can sign up to teach workshops to others in the community through Skillshare. Local Skillshare classes meet offline and in-person, where students come together to learn real-world skills ranging from entrepreneurship to crafting to cooking. Anyone with experience and knowledge to share can teach a class, and any place can be a classroom — a co-working space, coffee shop, garage or conference room.
Classes on Skillshare range in price, which is set by the teacher, but tend to cost around $30 per class. In general, Skillshare classes are orders of magnitude cheaper than their traditional equivalents at big universities and education centers. Skillshare also offers Hybrid classes, which combine project-based, online learning with in-person workshops, allowing students to collaborate and learn with others around the globe.
Skillshare began as a way for communities to share local knowledge by teaching and taking classes on everything from programming to entrepreneurship to cooking. The most vibrant local communities include New York City, where Skillshare is headquartered, and San Francisco. To celebrate, members of the Skillshare team, including west coast Community Development Manager Helena Price and Founder/CEO Mike Karnjanaprakorn, will be hosting a happy hour on September 18th, which you can RSVP to here.
