Skilling is open source software for making and running skill courses. A skill course is where students learn to do problem-solving tasks independently, like programming, data analysis, or making ads.

Skilling courses are usually flipped. You create a textbook-like website, with lessons students read on their own. The site has many hands-on exercises. You or a grader assess student work using a fast formative feedback system. Students get personal help face-to-face, or with online synchronous tools like Zoom. There are no lectures, just help sessions, group work, and other activities.
