Dear R and J,
What makes MIT OCW-centric World University and School competitive with all the other great online educational projects?
For one, World University and School is planning to accredit to offer free (since C.C. - Creative Commons' licensed), online, MIT OCW-centric (http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses/), university degrees and with plans for MIT OCW-centric degrees in many, many languages and countries. In addition, WUaS is wiki with plans for online schools in all 7,106 languages and 242 countries, whereas Wikipedia, which we all wrote, is in 285 languages, and they've just designed and deployed the new, amazing, C.C., interlingual, Wikidata database. No other online educational project that I know has this language or degree focus. See the beginning Admissions' wiki subject page at WUaS for degree information - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Admissions_at_World_University_and_School#World_University_and_School_Links. See these beginning "Language" and "Nation State" wiki subject pages - planned for all languages plus, and all countries - as well
Nation States -
WUaS is also seeking to become the MIT / Harvard of the internet in all 7,106 languages and 242 countries.
WUaS is MIT OCW STEM-centric, and planned for large languages.
WUaS will build on a Reed College undergraduate education to highlight the conference method online in sciences and STEM subjects.
