Why would a class or teacher account be suspended?

A class may be taken down and a teacher's account may be closed if the Trust & Safety team uncovers evidence that is in violation of one or more of these rules, including: 

  • Misrepresentation of enrollments, reviews, minutes-watched, or referrals (i.e., purchasing or procuring disingenuous enrollments, referrals, or reviews on third party websites)
  • Attempts to artificially inflate class ranking
  • The characteristics of the teacher account overlap with the characteristics of student accounts enrolled in their class
  • A party related to the teacher is posing as an independent, supportive party in class comments or elsewhere
  • The teacher's account is associated to networks of users exhibiting suspicious activity (or known to have exhibited suspicious activity in the past) 
  • The teacher is presenting someone else’s work as their own
  • Misrepresentation or failure to disclose relevant facts in teacher or class material
  • The teacher is trading enrollments with other teachers on Skillshare, or enrolling in other Skillshare classes solely to market their own classes to that class’s students
  • Classes may also be closed if they launch but, on closer inspection, do not fall within our Community Guidelines or Class Guidelines (including our minimum education standards).
