Do you ever think like this: "hey, I can teach others how to do this." This is exactly why Skillshare was started. Everyone has something valuable to teach. Skillshare is a community marketplace that provides valuable tools and information to help career development or expand technical skills, and it enables users to learn anything from anyone.

A good news from Shapeways that they have opened a 3D printing design school on Skillshare - Shapeways Skillshare School. For a start, they offers seven classes by Aaron Trocola(Owner/Industrial Designer at 40WestID), Natalia Krasnodebska(jeweler and educator), Kevin Wei(Teacher and Artist) and Duann Scott(Education at Shapeways) ranging from beginner to more advanced tutorials, including:

  • Intro to Parametric Design & 3D-Printed Jewelry
  • Intro to Parametric Design & 3D-Printed Building Block Sculptures
  • Intro to Design for 3D Printing with Shapeways
  • Design Your Own iPhone Case to be 3D Printed with Shapeways
  • Intro to Parametric Design & 3D-Printed Wall Art
  • Design for 3D Printing with Shapeways
  • How to design your own ring and 3D print it with Shapeways

So far "Design for 3D Printing with Shapeways" course is scheduled on Mon, Aug 6th, 2012 (5:30 PM – 7:30 PM) and it costs $30.

If you are a 3D designer and interested in teaching a class in 3D printing maybe it is time to join the internet and make money doing what you love.

Shapeways is not the only company in 3D printing world which opens its school on Skillshare. GE Garage, a high-tech, hands-on lab loaded with laser cutters, 3D printers, and other high-tech tools will also provide you the chance to get your hands dirty and discover modern manufacturing processes.

Their "Hands On with Autodesk 123D Catch" course is open from Apr.25 through May.1, 2012 and anyone can subscribe to the school or class on Skillshare for free.

For an inspiration Programmer Avi Flombaum (video below) shared his story of his teaching experience on Skillshare. He ended up quitting his job and become a full time teacher. Internet has become a platform that designers can build their shops and professionals become educators - more and more people can fulfil their dreams while connecting to a larger audience than was ever before possible.
