Black Rhinoceros: Creative Commons!, Yes, for approval with the state of California's Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education, If WUaS can manage the fundraising, and related financial operations, WUaS would like to offer online, MIT OCW-centric, C.C. university degrees, - beginning, in English, with bachelor (in 2014), Ph.D. (2015), law (2016) and M.D. (2017), degrees, as well as possibly I.B. diplomas (2015?), - to begin, in many, many countries and languages, beginning with the United Nations' languages, since they are lingua francas of the world, Creative Commons' licensed Law and Medicine Courses at WUaS
Thank you and Creative Commons!
Yes, for approval with the state of California's Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education, they are referring to diplomas, in terms of printable "completion verification documents," and I and WUaS are just double-checking about Creative Commons' licensing and copyright vis-a-vis MIT OCW, because I'm not versed in this, in this important, initial, BPPE approval stage. Thank you for your helpful clarifications.
If WUaS can manage the fundraising, and related financial operations, WUaS would like to offer online, MIT OCW-centric, C.C. university degrees, - beginning, in English, with bachelor (in 2014), Ph.D. (2015), law (2016) and M.D. (2017), degrees, as well as possibly I.B. diplomas (2015?), - to begin, in many, many countries and languages, beginning with the United Nations' languages, since they are lingua francas of the world. See the beginning Admission's page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Admissions_at_World_University_and_School#World_University_and_School_Links - for information about degrees. (For example, 204 international Law Schools - per the number of countries in the Olympics - under one 'umbrella,' if at all possible, and Creative Commons' licensed too, will be very helpful for a myriad of international legal questions, especially, for example, intellectual property ones; California presently has about 12 online law schools, none ABA approved as I understand it, but anyone can sit the Bar exam in California, as well, I've heard).
Beyond C.C. MIT OCW's 2,150 courses, WUaS has a great universities' focus - see this wiki list ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Courses#University_course_listings ... where WUaS will continue to facilitate wiki-aggregation of free, open, online, educational resources, especially C.C. ones. Yale OYC's 42 courses are already C.C. so that's an obvious, WUaS, accreditation candidate, as well. (WUaS is planning to move from the Wikia wiki to the new C.C. Wikidata repository as our financial situation improves). While MIT OCW doesn't have many law or medical classes, WUaS plans to build on the existing ones.
A humongous endeavor, World University and School is like Wikipedia with MIT OCW, and planning to be in all 7,105 languages (per "Ethnologue") and 204 countries, each an extensible, C.C., wiki school; Wikipedia is in 285 languages by way of comparison, and we all wrote it.
I'll proceed with WUaS's ongoing communication with California's Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education.
