Skillshare is a startup with a mission to make education accessible from anyone, anywhere. By logging in with a standard email account and password or through one’s personal Facebook account, members can access online classes separated by categories such as Creative Arts, Culinary Arts, Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle, and Technology.
Based on the zip code you provide during login and what category you choose to learn more about, members can also personalize their own learning schedule as they select courses or topics that interest them.
For PR and Communications professionals an outlet like this one could be extremely useful for not only giving back by sharing useful information with others, but becoming a go-to source for education based on a particular niche – especially in areas where courses about PR and Communications are sparse or nonexistent.
Would being able to offer information in an online class forum about the skill set most related to your organization’s mission be beneficial to your organization’s growth?
