I am the owner of Ghostly Ferns, a small web design studio based in Brooklyn. I’ve owned Ghostly Ferns since 2009 and have worked with early-stage startups, large enterprise companies, and loads of small businesses.
I have been a huge fan of Skillshare since before they started teaching online classes. I was immediately pumped when they opened up the ability to take classes virtually. I just loved the idea that anyone can learn a wide variety of subjects from an instructor across the globe. My original class, Introduction to Web Design, began getting some feedback from struggling students that aren’t familiar with Photoshop. In an effort to help them, I am now launching an Introduction to Photoshop class that I encourage students to take first.
My advice to teachers: Don’t be afraid to put in the work to make the class awesome. Technically the classes are student led, which means a teacher can post the class and walk away. I would definitely recommend that teachers keep an eye on the student work and communicate with the class if they see common mistakes or questions from the students.
I have gotten so many amazing opportunities that have stemmed from teaching this class. I have received a couple of client projects that came from students. These students are founders that realized through the course of the class that web design wasn’t as easy as they had thought. As I mentioned earlier, I was connected with my intern, and now teammate, Ria, through this class. Not to mention loads of one-on-one connections with students around New York that have taken my class. I’ve bumped into them at the local coffee shop and hosted events in which a lot of them have attended. It’s been such an awesome experience connecting with my students in real life!Tweet
