How Skillshare Helps

The Skillshare platform is built as a meritocracy: whether you happen to be a famous expert in your field or are simply passionate about what you do, we believe that the quality of your content should speak for itself. To ensure that all teachers have the same potential to succeed, we’ve established a few platform rules. Understanding these rules will help you make your class, and class promotion, a success. 

Trending on Skillshare
As soon as it goes live, your class will become visible on the Skillshare Trending page. Your class’ position on the trending page is determined by class engagement (the number of minutes students watch in your class.)

To ensure freshness of content, newer classes are given a slight bump, which is why it’s important to get started with class marketing as soon as your class goes live. The more students engage in your class right away, the higher your class will rise in Skillshare’s listings, and the more students on Skillshare will discover it.
