When you start the process of uploading your class content through our class upload tool, a “class draft” is automatically created and saved to your account. You can continue editing your class draft over time and publish it to the platform whenever you’re ready.
If you are a returning teacher or previously started a class draft before Skillshare’s application process for first-time teachers went into effect on May 1, 2023, then you can start a new class draft at any time.
Once you’ve been approved to teach, here are the steps to start a class draft:
- From a desktop computer, navigate to www.skillshare.com/teach. Be sure you are signed into your Skillshare account.
- Click the green Start a Class button in the center of the screen. If the Start a Class button is not accessible, this means that you are either not signed into your Skillshare account or are not currently approved to teach.
- If this is your first time creating a class draft, you’ll be prompted to choose a category for your class (you can change this later) and your primary goals for teaching on Skillshare.
- Click the blue Continue button at the bottom of the screen.
Your new class draft will load in the browser with a default title, “My Class.” You can start uploading your class content now or return to it later — your draft will be saved to your account. To retrieve it, refer to our article Where can I find my class draft?.
