Building on the 3, free, online, interactive, Stanford, open, computer courses,
the < 2000 MIT OCW courses,
the 35 Yale OYC, -
all here at World Univ & Sch -
(plus much more),
WUaS facilitates a new, university conversation,
where YOU can teach, learn and create,
all from home on your computer.
Free (Bachelors., PhD, Law, MD) degrees are planned.
Wikia is World University & School's current, free, wiki
until WUaS finds MediaWiki experts
(Wikipedia uses MediaWiki, and now is in around 281 languages).
WUaS is planning to be in all 3,000-8,000 languages.
Here's WUaS Information Technologies and Data Plan:
WUaS plans to be advertising free, as well, like Wikipedia.
What might you add to this I.T. plan?
In addition to being a meta-directory for open, free teaching and learning resources,
WUaS also plans to offer free degrees (Bachelors, Ph.D. Law, and Medicine),
with its first matriculating Bachelors' class in 2014.
World University and School has a focus on great universities' open course ware,
especially these universities -
(and the free, Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) has been posted at WUaS for more than a year now).
WUaS wants to link as meta-directory all great open course ware, like SEE.
For Anthropologists & everyone:
Please give some thought to how folks,
in countries you know well,
might benefit from a free, open, online university or school -
and in languages, as well -
WUaS plans to be in all languages & countries,
on handheld computers with video,
and as course, teaching and learning, and knowledge archive, too (for millennia).
(For comparison, Wikipedia is in around 281 languages, as wiki, and is becoming an interesting archive, as well).
