Achievements FAQ

What are Skillshare Achievements?

Skillshare Achievements are a new way to mark your progress and celebrate your creative accomplishments. You'll earn achievements for the learning you're already doing on Skillshare. It's a fun way to see your activity over time and stay motivated to hit your next big milestone.

What kind of achievements can I earn?

Badges are awarded when a user completes a specific action or a certain number of actions. Check out the badges you have earned and learn about the next badges you could earn on your Achievements dashboard.

Stay tuned for more achievements you can earn in the near future.

How do I earn badges?

There are three types of badges: Lifetime, Milestone, and Community.

Lifetime badges are earned for engaging in the core learning experiences on Skillshare and can be earned every time you complete the required action. For example, you earn the Complete a Class badge every time you complete a class.

Milestone badges are earned as you reach specific milestones in your engagement with the core learning experiences and can only be earned once. For example, you’ll earn the Submit 3 Projects badge after you submit three different class projects. 

Community badges are earned for engagement with other users on Skillshare and can only be earned once. For example, you’ll earn the Follow a Teacher badge after you follow a teacher.

To learn more about all of the actions you can take to earn a badge, check out the Achievements dashboard. Plus, stay tuned to your dashboard for new badges you can earn.

Why don’t I see achievements awarded for my past activity?

Skillshare Achievements are designed to encourage you to make progress on your individual learning goals. Skillshare first started awarding badges in late 2022 and will not be awarding badges for activity completed prior to that date. Your profile will continue to show your learning stats, including hours spent, projects submitted, and discussion posts.
