What an amazing year it's been here at Skillshare. We're so grateful to our community of 1.2 million for changing how we learn and teach creative skills. Here's a look back at 2015; we can't wait for what 2016 has in store!
Earlier this year, we developed a TA (Teacher's Assistant) program to recognize students who exemplify the Skillshare mantra. TAs are students who go the extra mile to participate in the community and help make Skillshare the best place to learn.
With all the amazing classes and student projects being created every single day on Skillshare, there's always something new and exciting for our community members, like you, to share with your friends and followers. That's why we're happy to announce that you can now earn money by doing just that!
This past week, Skillshare reached an important milestone: we surpassed 1 million students. We see this as an exciting victory not only for us, but for the future of learning as we know it.

We’re excited to announce that we’re celebrating more than 500,000 class enrollments with $500,000 in Creativity Scholarships for students around the world. Eligible students will receive a year of Premium Membership to Skillshare.

One of the most rewarding things that we experience in life is connecting with others, simply because we enjoy being around people who share similar interests as we do.
In South Korea, on the second Thursday of November, flights are grounded to reduce noise pollution, the stock market opens an hour late to clear roads, and all schools shut down for the day to keep the country quiet for Suneung.
We set out to create a video that showcased the brilliant creative work of our community, as well as show the world what we really value and find important. Here's a list of a few things that are important to us - can you find them represented in the video?
At consumer-facing web startups like Skillshare, we spend much of our time working for a hockey stick. Not the old-fashioned, wooden kind which a kid might ask Santa for at Christmas, but rather the one which refers to Paul Graham’s startup growth curve , where the curve resembles an upright hockey stick in its switch from flatlined growth to an explosive tick up and to the right.
At Skillshare, two of our biggest values are entrepreneurial drive and collaboration. We believe that a team of self-motivated, creative people working together will execute ideas that are 100x better than anything an individual ever can. This means there’s no single person dictating the features and projects we work on, and no matter what role or specialties someone has at Skillshare, he/she is first and foremost a creative problem solver.
Our mission is simple. Reunite learning with education and make it accessible to every single person on this planet. Anyone can learn anything, at any age, at an affordable cost, anywhere in the world.
