Skillshare pays money for teaching online. It allows you to create 3 types of accounts, i.e. Free
trial, monthly premium, and yearly premium. The trial account period is two months and after
this period ends the website will cut the charges of monthly premiums from your account. The
monthly premium cost you about 15$ and the yearly period will cost you 99$.

The teachers make money on the posted videos if students of premium packages watch their
course. Teachers must pay for premium packages to take classes regularly. It has 7 million
students affiliated with the website and learning their courses. Once you have published the
class, you will get money for each minute the video is watched even if you have not published

being watched. Typically teachers earn between $0.05 to $0.10 for every minute the video will
be watched. This means that if you have 1000 students, you can easily make $500-$1000 by

500 students.
