Skillshare: The emergence of the teacherpreneur and workskiller

Via Scoop.itWorkskillers, teacherpreneurs and the education revolution

Skillshare is one of a growing number of education startups transforming the way we think about learning. A community marketplace, Skillshare lists classes on its website, ranging from business development to culinary arts, that are offered in your area. Class prices are the teacher’s call. But the real selling point is that anyone can teach a class. Skillshare’s basic belief is that everyone has something they want to learn and something they can teach to others, no formal degree required. It seems utterly anti-college, but the broader goal is to push learning beyond the classroom and effectively make every city a college campus.
