Craftsy was launched in 2011 with the idea to change the online learning and to make it high-quality. The main goal that the four founders had was to create something that easily accessible and that makes online learning more fun. They spent a lot of time creating a video player that would offer this in-class experience.
This whole learning experience is really unique, because you really do feel like you are in the class. What makes it so different is that you can actually communicate and talk to your instructors and ask the questions that you have. You can also meet your fellow “classmates” and talk to them too. It is really unique, because in usual online classes you do not have this chance and you are kind of left alone there. with Craftsy it is much different and more fun.
Craftsy is also great for many different features that it can offer. Not only you can talk to your professors and classmates that are taking the course, but you can also bookmark the parts of the videos that you liked, so that it would be easy to access the information whenever you want. You can also watch the videos and tutorials on your phone or a tablet which makes it so much more convenient. Another great thing about Craftsy is of course the variety of courses that they have to offer. There are classes in quilting, sewing, knitting, cake decorating and many other categories, you only have to choose.
But not only you can learn how to do crafts – you can also make money of what you do with Craftsy. You can buy the things that others do on the online marketplace, and you can actually sell the things you make. All the money will go to support the designers who struggle to make their way in the business too.
