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.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
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.
