New Learning App: SkillShare
The Skillshare App lets users study a huge range of topics including cooking, artistic techniques, writing, personal development, and business. Students can also get online feedback from the instructor. Some lessons are less than an hour, while others are a collection of sessions.
Users can personalize their account to mark favorite classes, set goals, and share progress with others to find new inspiration with millions of other students! Southborough Library users can request access to Skillshare for 30 days using this link. Please provide your name, email address, and library card number when you submit an application for an account.
