Skillshare is a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone. We believe that everyone has something they want to learn and something they can teach to others. This means our communities are really the greatest universities.

I think this form of community of practice- or practices- has tremendous potential. It is ideal if the same set of people isn't always doing the teaching but if each person is sometimes a learner and sometimes a teacher, regardless of age.

Love the notion of 'regardless of age'. The dogma today is that there is an aging population = crisis. But just because the world is aging, doesn't mean that economies are doomed. Platforms such as Skill Share enable retirees (who would otherwise leave the workforce entirely) a way of staying productive, earning a living as well as contributing back into the economy.
