“New technologies now make it possible to make advanced education available worldwide, online, to students who don’t have access to universities,” declares Scott MacLeod, founder and president of World University and School. “Creative Commons' licensed World University and School plans to offer free, online, bachelor, Ph.D., law, and M.D. degrees beginning in 2014, accrediting on MIT OpenCourseWare, while WUaS remains, at the same time, an open wiki (editable web pages) school for people-to-people teaching and learning.”
Daniel Kottke, in an interview, - http://blip.tv/the-next-step/thenextstep-73-opensourcelearning-5974437 - talked with Scott MacLeod and Barbara Bruechert about this in his show on 'Open Source Learning and World University & School.'
“Matriculating, free, bachelor’s degree classes will begin in 2014, Ph.D. classes, in 2015, law in 2016, and M.D. in 2017.”
WUaS, based online, (but out of Canyon, California), currently already offers free, open teaching and learning possibilities in these main areas, where you can teach to your web camera, or interactively on video, as well as learn from the resources on these main pages - Courses, Subjects, Languages (All), Nation States (All), You at WUaS, Research, Educational Software, Library Resources, Museums, Hardware Resource Possibilities - all accessible from the pop down menus here: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University.
Students, faculty, interns, learners and experts interested in posting their own materials are invited to visit World University and School at http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects. It’s still too early to apply for admission in autumn of 2013 to matriculate in autumn 2014 for the class of 2018, but parents and students interested in obtaining specific information about World University and School’s developing admissions' procedures for free MIT OCW degrees, from home (overachievers welcome), are invited to visit the WUaS Admission’s page here: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Admissions_at_World_University_and_School, or contact email@example.com, or simply to edit a page.
