How to Save on University Budgeting Through Content Licensing

Published on May 22, 2024

Knowing how to budget your institution’s needs is a critical skill. It isn’t always easy, whether you’ve worked in higher-education budgeting for a while or are new to the financial side of schooling.

There might be years when innovative technology takes precedence over new coursework or hiring qualified instructors is more valuable than adding to the school’s slush fund. One way to boost your institution’s market presence while maintaining responsible university budgeting is to license content.

What is Content Licensing?

When your institution licenses content, you gain access to pre-made courses. These courses save money and hundreds of hours of work. They also significantly reduce the time to market. You'll be able to open the course to student enrollment sooner and bring in more funds, which you can then allocate where needed most.

Content licensing is a practical way to reduce your institution's university spending. With more of your course catalog budget left over, you can save it or redirect it toward other essential costs.
