There was a time, just a few years back, that content meant one thing and courses meant another thing. Content was videos, PDFs, documents, media files (audio), images, anything and everything that was not a course. And a course was a horse of course (funny, not). Anyway, it was a course.
But as we change – evolve in our space, content (the term) has too. Nowadays, courses slide under content.
We create our own content. We buy 3rd party content. We outsource someone else to build our content. We surf the net to link and curate content. We read content. We explore content. We place content onto our learning systems.
We expect our learners, employees, customers, students to access this content.
