Skillshare. Review

Updated: Jun 21, 2021

There's a lot of online learning platforms around today, and sometimes choosing which one is right for you can be quite a challenge. That's why we've put together a short series of reviews of some of our top picks. Here's our thoughts on Skillshare.


Skillshare, whilst being a little less well known than others on the list, is certainly a big-hitter in the e-learning world. The platform is heavily focussed on creative skills, and this focus is well-placed with some exceptional options across animation, film & video, photography and illustration, amongst others. The design of the site itself is slick and easy to navigate.

Skillshare has recruited some top talent to feature in their roster of creators/teachers. Users can get started with a free trial for 14 days to get to know the platform and navigate the entire catalog with their Premium Membership.

Top courses

Here are some of our top picks from Skillshare

For Business

Skillshare’s business clients include GM Finance, Vice, Amazon Web Services, and Lululemon, amongst others. Much like the other platforms, for smaller teams (5 - 49), you can sign up for $99 USD per user per year, directly on the website. For teams of 20+, Skillshare will provide a demo and be able to discuss a custom solution and pricing.

Final thoughts

For creatives... this is probably the one for you! If you’re in the market for a relevant course in a range of creative skills, then SkillShare might just be the place for you. There’s a range of courses to choose from, many of which you won’t find at SkillShare’s competitor’s. The platform is straightforward and easy to use, so shouldn’t take any time at all to get used to it.
