The content you provide forms the foundation of your students' educational journey, preparing them for successful careers in their chosen fields. One innovative and effective strategy to strengthen this foundation is through content licensing. It allows you to supplement your existing curricula with specialized knowledge and resources, saving you time and energy in content creation.
Content licensing also opens up new opportunities for program expansion, allowing you to offer your students a broader range of academic paths and professional development options. MedCerts is a national leader in online career training and certification programs, with an extensive repository of educational content in the healthcare and IT sectors.
The MedCerts content licensing model offers a versatile approach to enriching your institution's educational offerings. It's not a one-size-fits-all solution, but a flexible model with several options based on your institution's specific needs and goals.
This option allows your institution to directly offer MedCerts programs to your students. You can rapidly expand your course catalog, especially in high-demand fields like healthcare and IT. Your students can complete MedCerts programs as part of their two- or four-year degree or as a prerequisite.
You can reach a broader audience by expanding your offerings to businesses, alumni and continuing ed students. This model is perfect if you're looking to diversify your program offerings without the time, cost and effort associated with developing new curricula from scratch.
Through this option, students who complete MedCerts' programs can transfer their credits to your institution. This method allows your students to access specialized training while working towards their degree or certification at your institution. It's an excellent choice for institutions seeking to provide more comprehensive educational pathways and enhance their students' employability upon graduation.
You’ll widen your enrollment funnel with this non-competitive option. You can also use MedCerts programs to offer prior learning assessments and boost students’ academic standing.
MedCerts' content can be used to supplement your existing programs, providing additional learning resources that can enhance your students' comprehension and skills. This model is particularly useful for institutions looking to update their curricula with the latest industry knowledge and practices. You can upskill your teams, offer certifications along with your degrees, integrate our content into your degree program or provide prerequisites for freshmen.
You should consider several factors when deciding what content licensing model is best for your institution:
Evaluate your institution's needs and goals: Understand the gaps in your current offerings and identify areas for enhancement or expansion. For instance, if you're seeking to broaden your course catalog quickly, reselling MedCerts' programs might be the most effective approach.
Consider your students' needs: What additional skills and knowledge will benefit your students the most? If your students are looking for specialized training that can be credited towards their degree, the credit transfer option might be the best fit.
Assess resource availability: Developing new curricula can be resource-intensive. If you're looking to save time and resources, consider using MedCerts' content to supplement your existing programs.
At MedCerts, we’re continually updating our courses to offer the latest and most in-demand technical and healthcare skills. By partnering with us, you can offer more learning resources for your students and revenue options for your organization. Reach out today to learn more.
