Skillshare is Super Cool

One of Berkeley’s treasures is its DeCal program, a space for democratized education as students teach students in classes ranging from Critical Analysis of Harry Potter to Breakdancing.  (I tried my hand at the latter and would say it was arguably the highlight of my life.)

I love how Skillshare is scaling this idea, helping anybody learn anything from anyone.  Currently launched in NYC, some of the classes offered at present include Food Photography, Literary Devices Through Rap, and “Surprisology.” Can’t wait for the learning revolution to hit the Bay Area.

P.S. Props to Skillshare on the swanky video.
