Skillfeed is the latest site to capitalize on the white-hot learn-to-code trend.

This new contestant hails from the bowels of stock photography site Shutterstock, an online behemoth with a $1.5 billion market cap.

Skillfeed’s curriculum covers such topics as CSS and MySQL. It also has some basic design and computer literacy coursework on topics like Excel and Photoshop.

Like Shutterstock itself, which serves as a marketplace for freelance photographers and illustrators to vend their wares to end customers, Skillfeed will be a middle man-type service to facilitate interactions between instructor/experts and students.

As of this writing, Skillfeed has around 10,000 instructional videos from 100 instructors. Videos include long-form coursework as well as “skill snacks,” short clips containing tips and techniques you can pick up in five minutes or so.

You can give it a shot with a free one-week trial, or pay $19 per month for a subscriptions for unlimited video access start at only $19 per month.

As with all Shutterstock content, the parent site doesn’t seem to monitor or censor the content too much, so caveat emptor. This isn’t the top-down or hand-curated instruction you’ll find on other sites. Still, it’s a huge network based on an already successful platform. We’ll see where it goes.
