Hippopotami: If a liberal arts education is a CANDY STORE of students CHOOSING 32 courses (like computer programs?), over 4 years, of potential FLOW

If a liberal arts education is a CANDY STORE of students CHOOSING 32 courses (like computer programs?), over 4 years, of potential FLOW experiences (Csikszentmihalyi), how to ensweeten MIT OCW at World University & School for FREE Bachelor & Ph.D. degrees?

Education, ideas & 'flow' experiences can be symphonic. How?


An important part of this music lies with students enjoying (finding flow), and skillfully playing, the musical instruments of their bodyminds ...

reading, writing & computing ...

which may happen more readily with students who choose to go to great universities.

The web & WUaS can make such opportunities available to all. ...

And how can students enjoy (finding flow), and skillfully play, the musical instruments of their bodyminds, to study & learn ... reading, writing & computing ... like the Grateful Dead jamming for 30 years together ... :) http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Grateful_Dead

In what ways will World Univ & Sch be accessible on laptop computer screens, smartphones, in virtual worlds, but also in the classroom, and in places like Egypt, in a flash?

MIT OCW & Khan Academy, for example, in Arabic on Egyptian classroom projectors (even on little Pica projectors:) through World University & School ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages.

Each language at WUaS will become its own ONLINE Univ or Sch.

How far away is great university bodymind music (for students) from the evolutionary biologically-informed environments of our primate ancestors?

Far: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Evolutionary_Biology ...

And not so far: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Psychotherapy ...

... because we human primates can produce symbols, talk rationally, and learn :)


... and do yogasana:)

I'd love to see a lot of great courses on raga at World Univ & Sch, with so much great, online music by Ravi Shankar :) ...

There's already a MIT OCW course here at WUAS on North Indian Music ...http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/India , with only a little music by Ravi Shankar from YouTube ...

Check out his Three Ragas CD from 1957 :))


Explore 'singing with' (and improvising with) Ravi ...


*

There's something about articulating sounds which is creative & generative, and which changes things - your 'cultural reality' - even in far reaching ways :)

Talk (with a counselor) and sing ... and produce symbols

!!


*

Try singing with the Dead, too .... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Grateful_Dead .



*

Singing can be a wonderful practice ... and singing is so easy ... ease into singing? ... a lot?



*

How to invent, or apply, something like the patented PageRank (R) algorithm to World University & School ... as WUaS moves to the next WUaS Wiki ... #StanfordLaw How, too, to develop patents vis-a-vis the WUaS Research page: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Research


Is WUaS potentially patentable because it creates a new use, with FREE degrees ?
