If you would like to see my review of Udemy you can do so by clicking here.
Skillshare has over 17,000 courses on the platform and costs only $10 a month to become a premium member.
Although there are many free courses on Skillshare, a premium membership will give you access to all the courses on Skillshare.
The main difference between Skillshare and other online course platforms like Udemy is that with Skillshare you pay a monthly fee for all courses while on Udemy you have to pay for each individual course.
This does have it’s benefits and negatives which we will discuss in the next section of this review.
Because I am an instructor on Skillshare, if you sign-up using my link below you will gain 2 free months of Skillshare premium.
You can grab your two free months by clicking here.
This is a question you are going to have to ask yourself…
I’ve taken Skillshare courses myself and there are lot’s of courses on the platform, over 17,000 to be exact.
The quality of the courses vary but that’s as you would expect from a platform like Skillshare.
The thing I like the most about Skillshare is that the vast majority of the courses are short and sweet. You can take a 10 minute course on how to grow herbs for example.
I like these types of courses on Skillshare and I think the type of person that will benefit from Skillshare the most is someone who doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on individual courses, doesn’t have a lot of free time but still wants to educate themselves when they feel the need to.
Courses on Udemy can sometimes be up to 5+ hours long. This is great if you have the time and commitment to learn but sometimes a 15 minute course is easier to get through.
Because I teach people how to make money with online courses naturally I also sell my own courses on Skillshare.

I also use Skillshare to learn a few things here and there myself when it comes to growing my online business.
The $10 monthly price is cheap when you really think about what Skillshare is offering you.
My only complaint is that some of the courses on Skillshare are not the best quality. I’ve watched a few that I would rate as being “meh” but because I’m paying for the whole platform and not that individual course this doesn’t really bother me that much.
If I don’t like a course on Skillshare I just move onto a different one.
Pros and Cons
Let’s go over the Pro’s and Con’s of Skillshare.
- Very affordable price at $10 a month.
- Lot’s of courses to enroll in (17,000+).
- Courses are easy to digest.
- A great place for instructors to get started teaching courses.
- Some courses are lackluster compared to others.
- Website interface is a little bit outdated.
- Not much interaction between the instructors and students.
That’s my summary of the pros and cons of learning on Skillshare in my own personal experience.
Overall I think the people who will benefit the most are people who can’t afford to buy multiple Udemy or private teachable courses a month.
The $10 a month subscription might be easier on the wallet for most students.
Buying a handful of courses on other platforms like Udemy can start to add up on a monthly basis.
Once again I want to mention that you can grab 2 months free of charge if you sign-up to Skillshare premium by clicking here.
If you are not happy after the 2 months simply cancel and you won’t be charged at all. Let me know your thoughts and experiences with Skillshare below!
