A Great, INTERNET, research university - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Research -
breath by breath,
is model & goal for WUaS (like MIT & top 5 but online & wiki)
focusing first on Brain/Bodymind, Language, Medicine & Computer Science
... with an invitation to engage
World Univ & Sch is wiki-building on Open Course Ware - like MIT OCW, Yale OYC, Berkeley Webcast, Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) ...
http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Courses in virtual worlds ...
and through collaboration, to start
... from a startup.
Check out the new book 'Unlocking the Gates' (Princeton) about Open Course Ware, again -
World Univ & Sch plans to wiki-aggregate great Open Course Ware and make possible interactive courses in virtual worlds.
We're in a 'Ford Model T' - early - stage of Internet development ... there's a lot still ahead!
Mozilla Firefox, Google Books, Craigslist, OpenOffice, Global Voices Online & Wikipedia are all models of high quality, open, helpful, FREE software which are models for World Univ & Sch, and most can be found at WUAS,
some here FREELY at WUaS EDUCATIONAL SOFTWARE
and some here FREELY at LIBRARY RESOURCES
WUAS is like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware.
