Today on Skillshare, the most popular classes are short and bite-sized. Through an average of 10-25 minutes of video content, teachers walk their students through a specific skill, concept or fun project. Students prefer short classes because they easily fit into their busy schedules - they can learn something new on their subway commute or lunch break. Taking Skillshare classes every day has never been easier!

At Skillshare, we believe that learning is a lifelong journey. One of our students, designer Mathew Kieser, recently reminded me of the importance of that journey when he traveled to New York to participate in a special Skillshare experience.
We believe that learning is a social endeavor. Over the next few months you’ll start to see new ways you can connect with your classmates and skills you’re interested in. By following people and skills your experience will be much more tailored to you.
