Thank you for joining the World University and School team. WUaS would like to invite you to participate in our hour-long, annual, business meeting this Saturday, February 8th, beginning at 9 a.m., Pacific Coast Time / 12 noon East Coast Time. 

This month we'll meet online in a Google + group video hangout, (with its 3 channels for communication, via group video, audio and group text chat, opening opportunities for communication).  And this month, I'll continue to send out a second email a few minutes prior to 9am PT, to our entire WUaS email list with the actual web address / URL of the Google + group video Hangout, as well as send a third email after business meeting with WUaS Minutes. 

You'll also find the Hangout posted here - - at WUaS's G+ profile page findable by searching in Google + on Here's an example of a WUaS Google + video hangout business meeting from April 2013, - "World University and School monthly business meeting" - You'll find other good examples as well as a good overview of WUaS, from a Stanford Coursera course I took in autumn 2012 called "Startup Boards: Advanced Entrepreneurship" on World University and School's YouTube video channel - - and here - WUaS's active blog is here -

The agenda for the upcoming, February 8th, 2014 WUaS, monthly, business meeting is here:

The next, open, hour-long, WUaS, monthly business meeting is on Saturday, March 8th, 2014, and is also WUaS's annual business meeting, in a Google + Hangout. 

For people on the sporadic, somewhat frequent, WUaS, email list, or who wish to be. WUaS is going to start posting actively to both the WUaS Google Group (, and the WUaS Yahoo Group (, both of which allow for daily and weekly digests. Please join these groups for daily and weekly digests. 

World University and School is looking for a new, Board member to focus on fundraising, and to actually bring in significant monies for WUaS, which you'll see on the above agenda. 

Concerning this WUaS team email list, we'll generally send out business meeting emails once a month. If you'd like to receive more frequent, sporadic, WUaS emails, please reply to this email telling me so. If you could, please REPLY with UNSUBSCRIBE, or an alternative email address, if you wish NOT to receive WUaS's emails, or receive them in a different email account, - and WUaS would be very grateful. 

Free, Creative Commons' licensed, online, wiki WUaS, like Wikipedia with MIT OCW, is planned for all 3,000-8,000 languages and for around 240 countries, with free degrees accrediting on C.C. MIT OpenCourseWare+, - and will help many, many people.  

World University and School would like to become the MIT / Harvard of the Internet, and in all 7,105+ languages and 242+ countries, with online, Creative Commons' licensed MIT OCW-centric, university degrees.
