Sumatran elephants: McGill thesis and previous OLPC / Rwanda research, One Laptop per Child, World University and School Indonesia in Indonesian, and your research, MIT OCW translated courses

Hi Jessika,

Great! The open "Society and Information Technology" class ( I'll be teaching on Harvard's virtual island and in G+ Hangouts this September will probably begin on the 2nd or 3rd Saturday, midday, depending partly on whom else might be interested many time zones away.

Please add your McGill thesis and previous OLPC / Rwanda research, as reference, to the following World University and School wiki pages, in the theses' section, using the following citation (roughly AAA at this point), if inclined. Adding resources can be a good way to learn how WUaS works. (WUaS is moving on from this Wikia wiki in the next while).

Tremblay, Jessika. 2011. [  One Laptop Per Child: Technology, Education and Development in Rwanda]. (refine search by title under "all etheses"). June. Montreal, CA: McGill University.

Rwanda -

Here, too, is the WUaS Indonesia wiki page, and the beginning of both a MIT OCW-centric university, and wiki school, both in English and Indonesian - -

(accessible from the Nation States' page -

I'm just drafting an email to MIT OCW translated courses (, and the MIT OCW external relations' director, seeking guidelines for WUaS for translating MIT OCW into Indonesian, which Tito (a WUaS Board member who lives in Jakarta, Indonesia, and a lecturer at the University of Indonesia) has expressed interest in facilitating. (I'll include you in some of this correspondence, as well as add you to the monthly WUaS business meeting email list, unless I hear otherwise from you).

WUaS may well be able to help provide a MIT OCW-centric school / university for the community on Java you're studying.

WUaS would like to become the MIT / Harvard / Cambridge + of the internet and in all 7,105+ languages and 204+ countries. (Wikipedia is in 285 languages by way of comparison), with free, C.C., MIT OCW-centric online, university degrees in many languages and countries.

What a lot of Tremblays there are in the McGill University database in which I found your thesis! And I'm sorry that my French isn't fluent.

What's your SL avatar's name?

Please let me know if you have further questions, and talk with you in the Society and Information Technology conversation in September.
