Education shouldn't stop in school which is why community based learning programs like those organized by Unclasses.org are a sensational way to develop new skills and hobbies in adulthood.

Is there a language you want to learn? Cuisine you want to be able to prepare? Want to write a rock song? Or perhaps you have something you enjoy teaching others? Unclasses.org hooks up people with common interests who want to teach or develop new skills using community based learning. Categories include everything from arts and crafts to finance, mind & body, tech, business, language, outdoors and travel.

In addition to Unclasses.org, which is free, other community based learning sites have popped up on the net including the Bank of Common Knowledge, a Spanish site based in Barcelona, which uses Peer-to-Peer and open-source learning. The community includes experts and amateurs, students and teachers.

The booming popularity of community based learning sites points toward our genuine interest in furthering our knowledge and skills, not because we have to, but because we want to.
