Is It Any Good?

Most of the instructors in the app seem passionate about their work, so it's an excellent way to foster the same passion in kids, as long as there is a genuine interest in the content being offered. Kids will feel empowered to choose the classes they want and learn at their own pace. Since many of the classes in Skillshare - Online Learning require access to pricey programs like Photoshop and Illustrator, or access to instruments or art supplies, it's important to make sure that kids will have the resources they need to complete their classes. And the paid version isn't cheap, so taking a look at the free version first might be a worthwhile investment of time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
