Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to subscribe on SkillShare with a super interesting “Welcome Bonus”: two months of free membership. During the following days I used the platform a lot and today I want to share with you my experience on SkillShare.
What is SkillShare?
SkillShare is an online learning community where you can learn almost anything. There are more than 28000 classes available about photography, design, computer science and many more topics.
I believe than platforms like SkillShare are an incredible opportunity to expand our knowledge. It has a ridiculous cost: 14 EUR for a month if you buy the premium one month at a time or 8 EUR per month if you opt for the annual subscription.
I’m done with the first year of my master degree so in these days I have more free time to dedicate to self-improvement. That’s why I decided to try SkillShare and I want to make the most of my two free months of subscription. Then I’ll evaluate if I have enough time to take more courses on SkillShare even if I’ll start the second year of university.
How does SkillShare works?
Once you’re subscribed on the platform, you can easily choose one course and take it.
This is how the homepage appears. Here you can see all the important things of the platform.
At the top of the page you can quickly resume one of the courses you’ve started but not finished yet.
Then there is the “Recommended For You” section, where you can find courses that the platform thinks you might like based on your interests.
By clicking on “Browse” you can look for a course suitable for you. You can filter the courses for the topic covered, lenght, teacher and so on.
Here you can see all the topics covered by SkillShare. My attention at the moment is placed on courses about productivity and time management in particular. But you can choose any topics you want.
Once you have chosen a course of your interest, just click on it to open it. A page like this will open.
This is the class I’m currently taking. On the right of the image you can see all the videos that are part of this class called “Learn How to Budget! Personal Budgeting Made Easy in 16 minutes!”. In this case the class is composed by 8 videos for a total of 16 minutes.
This is my sixth class. Before this I’ve taken some classes about productivity, as I said before. In particular these are the courses I’ve attended:
As you can see these courses are pretty short (between 15 and 30 minutes). The positive aspect is that they’re full of useful information and tips that we can start to use right away.
My opinion about SkillShare
I’m really enjoying the use of SkillShare and I think that you will too. It’s a very funny, easy and fast way to learn new things.
My intention is to attend at least 1 or 2 classes per week until the end of my free subscription.
I truly believe that taking even 1 or 2 courses per month could be extremely useful for ourselves and for our self-development. My suggestion is to take away 1 or 2 hours per week from TV and dedicate them to improve yourself by taking a course on SkillShare. It is not important the topic you want to learn more about. Just take a course, and you’ll see that it will be a beautiful and useful experience.
If you’re already attending classes on SkillShare, fell free to share your experience in the comments. If you’re not doing it, I suggest you to subscribe to the platform from this link so you can try it for free for 2 months.
Do not forget that I opened a Facebook page for FinanceShot. You can find it here. Like it if you don’t want to miss anything or interact with me. It’ll be a pleasure for me!
Moreover, if you want to receive my posts directly on your email, remember to subscribe to the blog by inserting your email in the form you can find on the bottom right of the blog.
I also opened the official Telegram groups for FinanceShot dedicated to my readers. You can find it here the italian group and here the english group. We’ll have the opportunity to discuss about all the topics covered by FinanceShot.
