People with knowledge to share can create their own local, in-person class or apply to teach a global, online class that students can enroll in from across the globe. Local classes happen offline and in-person while online classes happen on with students who can enroll from anywhere in the world. Teachers provides guidance, resources, and interactive lectures and office hours. Students can work together, share questions and ideas, and exchange feedback throughout the duration of the class.
