California Red-legged Frog: WUaS into ALL other languages and countries with Spanish, for example, Translation, Bookstore/Computer store, So, in Spanish, for example, how to build on the Chinese course you're developing, for instruction in Chinese from Spanish, and then for all of MIT OCW at WUaS?

Juan, 


In terms of MIT-centric WUaS in Spain, and Spanish-speaking lands, for example, there are a few focuses that could be helpful to think through together... 


Letting people know about Free and MIT OCW-centric WUaS in Spanish, 

1. Facilitating translation of Creative Commons licensed MIT-centric WUaS into Spanish, with something like Amara Subtitles +, 



2. Letting people know about the Bookstore Computer store eventually - 


eventually in Spanish for textbooks and books for WUAS courses 


3. Building faculty and interactivity for eventual group video conferencing in, for example, Google + Hangouts, for teaching and learning 


4. Teaching what you'd like at open, wiki WUaS


These are the steps for developing WUaS into other languages. 



And in terms WUaS's Board, here are some wiki Subjects you expressed in ... 


Volunteers' wiki subject page - 



"To Do List" - 




WUaS is beginning to develop first in United Nations' languages as well as in lingua francas in Africa. 

So, in Spanish, for example, how to build on the Chinese course you're developing (building on this - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/foreign-languages-and-literatures/21f-101-chinese-i-regular-spring-2006/ ?), for instruction in Chinese from Spanish, and then for all of MIT OCW at WUaS? 


World University and School, like Wikipedia with MIT OpenCourseWare, plans to be in all 7,413 + languages - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages - and 205 + countries - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Nation_States - as open wiki schools, and also plans to offer free, online, MIT-centric bachelor, Ph.D., I.B., law and M.D. degrees, in many languages and countries. (Wikipedia by way of comparison is in 285 languages). 




In many ways, World University and School is planning universal, MIT OCW-centric education, with people-to-people teaching and learning. 


Happy Thanksgiving! :)
