We'll be working with only a handful
of applicants to list classes each month. Submit your class proposal here and you'll be among the first to be invited to teach when we open up the platform to all teachers.
Please read the guidelines below before submitting your class.
Every class on Skillshare must have a class project and fit into one of our categories.
All classes must be project-based and teach a real-world skill that students can apply immediately towards getting a new job or working on a personal project. Here are a couple example classes we love:
• Illustration and Lettering: A Hands-on Approach to Label Design with Jon Contino
• Minimum Viable Product: Launch Your Startup Idea for Less than 1k with Michael Karnjanaprakorn
What's required of me to teach an online class on Skillshare?
• Step 1. Pick a Class Topic and Project:
Students learn real-world skills by working on a class project and getting peer feedback.
• Step 2. Outline Your Project Guide:
Your project guide is broken down into units which contain all of your class content.
• Step 3. Prerecord Video Lessons:
Your main method of teaching is through a series of short, prerecorded video lessons that will teach students what they need to know to complete the project.
What does the approval process look like to get a class successfully listed on Skillshare?
All online classes are reviewed by a Skillshare staff member against our Class Guidelines to ensure that the highest quality classes are being created on Skillshare.
• Step 1. Submit Your Class Proposal:
The first step is to submit your class proposal through this form, so that we can check that it fits into one of our required categories listed above.
• Step 2. Build Your Class Content:
Once your class is approved, we'll send you a link to your class builder where you can start filling out the details to build your project guide.
• Step 3. Submit Your Class for Review:
When you feel like the project guide is in a good place for students to immediately start learning from, submit your class for review and a Skillshare staff member will be reviewing your class materials against our Class Guidelines.
• Step 4. Get Your Class Approved and Listed:
If your class passes all requirements, a Skillshare staff member will publish your class, which means that your class will be live for students to start enrolling!
