Who better to teach you how to shoot a free throw than Steph Curry, or how to deliver a joke than Steve Martin? If you want to learn something new, there's really no better teacher than an expert in their field. Unfortunately, for most of us, getting a one-on-one cooking class with Wolfgang Puck or a writing lesson taught by Judy Blume probably isn't realistic. But MasterClass is bridging the gap by recruiting the greats to teach us regulars the secrets to their crafts.Unlike most e-learning platforms focused on teaching hard skills like cloud computing or UX design, Masterclass targets a different audience: creatives who are looking to learn and gain some inspiration along the way.

The site has courses in categories like writing, cooking, sports, and politics, and each of them are taught by (you guessed it) masters of the field. For $180 a year, you can get an all-access pass, which gives you access to all of the courses on the site. If you're only interested in one course, you can buy a single class pass for $90. Each class gives you access to video lessons, a course workbook, and class feedback - which, if you're lucky, could come from the star themselves.
If you're craving something to inspire you, help you hone in on a craft, or looking to get advice from a respected expert, you'll love MasterClass. The videos are well-produced, which makes each lesson really engaging, and the workbooks that accompany each lesson give you some extra insight to help reflect on what you've learned. You can even download the MasterClass app on your phone so you can squeeze in quick lessons whenever you have free time during your day.
