The internet has changed my life, indeed it has and it continues to do so on a daily basis. I am so happy to be alive during this exciting time in the world. I have been around since before they had touch tone phones, remote controls (you would have to actually get up off the sofa and turn a dial), before color television sets and even before mobile phones. Computers when I was a kid were so huge they took up an entire room! Every time I use my Iphone I feel like I have become part of the future I only dreamed of when I was a kid. Although, as a kid I was hoping that I could take a pill that would be a meal instead of having to sit down for dinner. Food was not of interest to me back then and only impeded my ‘me’ time, a dinner ‘pill’ seemed like it would be something they should have in the future. I digress. What I am trying to get across is the many opportunities that are now available to both you and myself and the latest one is Skillshare. You may know about this wonderful place already, or heard of it and have neglected to check it out or like me just recently came upon it. It’s a brilliant concept wherein people share their knowledge either via on-line courses or live ones. The classes are all very reasonably priced (think in the $10-$35 range) and some are even miraculously free! I haven’t taken one yet, but as part of my 2013 goals I want to learn more (of everything), I will be signing up for some. I plan to take some web design courses as I hate to feel so out of the loop on web design and I am sure my web coder could use a few less annoying S.O.S. emails from moi. There’s a cool video class that’s coming up that looks right up my alley, I have high hopes to get better at video this year and add that element to the blog via tutorials, interviews and the like. I missed the flower arranging course, but I have always wanted to learn that skill. I love the variety of courses that are available, the community looks nice and active and the price is right. Have any of you ever taken or taught a Skillshare course? I would love to hear about your experience! Or any on-line classes that you may know about that I can add to the directory would be great!
