Purchasing Content vs Creating?
I realize this is slightly off topic from normal discussions, but I'm wondering how many people are also purchasing generic content to supplement their own specific e-learning? The reason I ask is because I am seriously considering pulling the trigger on getting a site/campus license to Lynda.com so my real estate students would also have access to what I will call generic business content. (PowerPoint, Photography, Marketing with Facebook/Twitter, Photoshop, Wordpress, etc.)
The idea is that we'll be able to focus on real estate specific content while still providing resources they could use to help get them up and running in business.
To date, I have not incorporated 3rd party content into my own LMS/courses so I'm just looking for comments from those that have about results, potential issues, things not to do, etc. If you want to contact me offline via private message, that would be great as well.
