Abies nebrodensis: January 10, 2015 Monthly Business Meeting for World University and School - Thank you!

Dear Universitians and friends, 


WUaS will be giving a Reed College Paideia class on January 17th and 18th, as well as an outreach presentation to the Quaker Multnomah Monthly Meeting in Portland, OR, on January 16th. Here's the Reed College course description -

- MIT OCW-centric wiki World University and School: How Reedies can wiki-teach here and eventually develop WUaS as interns

A Paideia course on how Reedies can teach and develop Creative Commons’ licensed WUaS, which is like Wikipedia with MIT OpenCourseWare, in wiki-subjects that they love. This course will share in a hands-on manner 1) how to curate, edit, add to and develop a WUaS wiki subject page to develop further expertise in that area, 2) how to start a new WUaS wiki subject page as a creative opportunity, 3) how to begin teaching in a Google + group video Hangout and 4) possibly in 3D interactive virtual worlds, if there’s interest and time.

WUaS is planning to submit its curriculum this month to the Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) in the state of California, if WUaS can raise the $5000 fee as a tax-exempt donation this month. This is WUaS's main initial step to accreditation. Your donations are much appreciated. 

WUaS Information Technologies and Data Plan is developing, with WUaS technical lead questions, the semantic web, artificial intelligence, machine learning and IBM Watson/BlueMix

and my own blog -

At this upcoming monthly business meeting, WUaS will adopt a new budget for the 2015 calendar year; if there's further significant activity by this autumn, we'll revise this budget.  


Thank you for joining the World University and School team. WUaS would like to invite you to participate in our hour-long, monthly, business meeting on Saturday, January 12th, beginning at 9 a.m., PST / 12 noon EST. 

This month we'll again meet in Free Conference Call.  And this month, I'll continue to send out a second email this Thursday with the phone number and access code, 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 some previous monthly business meetings (conducted electronically in the manner of F/friends) as examples in Google Hangouts here - WUaS's active blog with past monthly business information is here -

The agenda for the upcoming January 12th, 2014 WUaS, monthly, business meeting is here -

WUaS's December 2014 financial report is attached.

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

The next, open, hour-long, WUaS, monthly business meeting is on Saturday, February 14th, 2015, and will meet in Free Conference Call. 

For people on the sporadic, somewhat frequent, WUaS, email list, or who wish to be, WUaS is 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. 

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. 

World University and School is planning to become the MIT / Harvard / Yale / Stanford / Oxbridge of the Internet, and in all 7,106+ languages and 242+ countries, with online, Creative Commons' licensed MIT OCW-centric, university degrees in large languages.

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.
