Brooklyn Skillshare
"The Brooklyn Skillshare is a community-based, community-led, & community-building learning events organized and taught by Brooklyn residents.

MISSION STATEMENT

Education is a right, not a commodity. We are all students and teachers, and we believe that everyone has something to teach and to learn from each other. The Brooklyn Skillshare is a communal, hands-on, learning experience that aims to serve as a jumping-off point in the construction of an autonomous, nonexclusive, reciprocal learning community."

Don't Go Back to School: A handbook for learning anything by Kio Stark — Kickstarter
"Don’t Go Back to School  is a handbook for independent learning that shows you how to learn almost anything without school. If you’re thinking about going back to school or about the possibility of self-taught learning, read this book first! Don’t Go Back to School will help you figure out if you can do it on your own—and it’ll show you how. It might just save you a gazillion dollars in tuition fees, and spare you the yoke of student loans for years to come."

This Week in Ed-Tech: App Inventor Finds a New Home | Hack Education
"Fans of Google‘s Android App Inventor can breathe a sigh of relief. Following on last week’s news that Google planned to shut App Inventor down, the company announced that it was open sourcing the project and handing it over to MIT Media Lab. The Media Lab in turn, and with seed funding from Google, announced it would launch a new Center for Mobile Learning, focusing on how new mobile technologies can help enhance learning and utilizing App Inventor as its first project."

"Skillshare announced this week that it has raised $3.1 million from Union Square Ventures and Spark Capital to help extend its offerings. Skillshare allows anyone to offer a class — on or offline. A sign, perhaps of great and committed investors: USV’s Alfred Wenger has taught a Skillshare class on Bayesian probability."

Skillshare — Classes to learn anything from anyone
"Skillshare is a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone. We believe that everyone has valuable skills and knowledge to teach and the curiosity to keep learning new things. This means our neighborhoods, communities and cities are really the world's greatest universities. Our platform helps make the exchange of knowledge easy, enriching, collaborative, and fun.

All of the classes happen in the real world (that means offline, despite what we nerds may consider to be “real”). We believe that learning should happen in groups around shared interests and passions. When you bring together a variety of voices and hands-on instruction, something truly spectacular happens. This magic just can't be replicated over a webcam and chatroom. We're here to spread this magic and increase the gross happiness index around the world!"
