As you may know, Skillshare is a marketplace which allows users to learn almost anything from anyone they choose. In partnership with Social Media Week, the School of Emerging Media & Technology was launched earlier this year to help students understand the technologies that have influenced the way we work online and off.
The Hybrid classes are a new format that is both online and available locally. It’s aim is to let anyone enroll from anywhere.
There will be project-based classes that incorporate an online classroom and workshops where students can collaborate. This provides a way for students to advance by themselves as well as having the chance to discuss their progress in groups face-to-face.
The first three Hybrid classes in the Skillshare School will be Understanding Marketing Madness from JWT’s James Cooper, Leverage Your Creativity for Good with charity: water’s Paull Young, and The Art of Cult-Like Loyalty from Ligaya Tichy.
The classes appear to have a base in marketing skills for this particular set, but alongside the other offerings from the school, there is bound to be a balance across different disciplines.
If you’re thinking of signing up, more information can be found about the Hybrid classes on the Skillshare tumblog.
