One of the biggest fears people have when first starting out with Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is just where to find all the relevant content needed for your course to be a success.

Utilising existing content – whether it be owned by your organisation, or looking externally to governing bodies or thought leaders in given topic areas – is crucial to ensuring that you’re not trying to recreate the perfect piece of learning content over and over.

The learning process takes us far beyond the realms of what content alone can do; we need learners to experience, practice, reflect and repeat real-world actions if they are to truly change behaviour. Content can be the start; it can be the trigger for a new experience, a new insight, a new conversation.

But it is just that, the start of a learning journey. So we believe we should spend more time tapping into content that is freely available and putting this to use within our organisations. Our time, money and effort should be spent elsewhere – on the experiences and implementations that allow learners to put ideas into practice.
