Skillshare Reviews

"Skillshare is boring"

The courses are not bad, but there are so much lack of interaction between the professors and the students that its pretty depressing. Its like they only go there to teach and its over. Like they hate their jobs or something. Personally i go to a course not only to learn but also to go along with people with my same interests.

"My Review of Skillshare for Teams”

I like that Skillshare focuses on Informal content like learning new skills, learning a hobby, etc which of course is very useful. Also, I like that I can contact the instructor of the course that I have enrolled in at any time if I didn't understand something. ****I don't like the price of the subscription of Skillshare which is really very expensive. Most of the courses offered are basic courses for beginner levels which is not good if you want to reach an advanced level.

"SkillShare for Teams"

One thing i like about Skillshare for Teams is the Live Classes. The UI is top-notch. It's pricy to use Skillshare for Teams...videos takes time to load most times.
