Hi Claudia (and Thom),
CC World University and School would like to donate CC WUaS to CC Wikidata and would like to come into conversation with you about this, if possible, as well. Given your interests, Claudia -
I am an assistant professor for Web Science/Human-Centered Computing at the Institute of Computer Science at Free University of Berlin. My research focuses on collaborative knowledge collections that provide a unique research environment for studying existing interdependencies between people’s participation processes (the social system), the employed software (the technical system) and the collectively created artefact (the knowledge system).
By unfolding existing design parameters of these systems, we can design more effective collaborative knowledge creation and learning processes and build new software that augment human cognition by computation. For this, I combine insights from various areas such as computational network analysis, data mining, human-computer interaction, information visualization, knowledge management and the semantic web.
Current fields of application are especially in the area of digital humanities, collaborative ontology development, and digital learning. (http://www.clmb.de and https://www.mi.fu-berlin.de/inf/groups/hcc)
I wonder how we might best come into further conversation about all of this, especially given your interest in "digital humanities, collaborative ontology development, and digital learning." For example, might we co-develop approaches to studying learning, academically, rigorously and longitudinally, at World University & School for free CC degrees inter- lingually especially?
In a broad sense, given your focus on "people’s participation processes (the social system), the employed software (the technical system) and the collectively created artefact (the knowledge system)" how would CC MIT OCW in 7 languages in Wikidata with students partly taking seminars with live faculty in Google + group video Hangouts articulate with the approach you are studying?
These latter approaches are basically what World University is planning for accredited degrees (i.e. Bachelor, Ph.D., law and MD, as well as IB high school). Would the Google Hangouts (and eventually a film realistic 3D build-able interactive virtual earth as classroom - e.g. Google Streetview/Maps/Earth with OpenSim and SL - and eventually with brainwave headsets for brain research, as well as linguistic research in terms of all languages' neurophysiology) be the social system, the CC MIT OCW in 7 languages (and eventually in most countries' main languages) be the technical system and Wikidata be the developing collectively created artefact (the knowledge system). This seems so on first glance.

collectively created artefact (the knowledge system)
Google group video Hangouts (the social system)?
CC MIT OCW in 7 languages, and eventually in most countries' main languages (the technical system)?
Wikidata (the knowledge system)?
Would you like to video conference about this at some point?
Claudia also, importantly, gave a talk as a professor (listed here http://www.clmb.de) on Wikidata in San Francisco in August 2015:
The above is exciting, and a kind of breakthrough, for planning and collaborating to develop WUaS in Wikidata in terms of machine learning, studying how students learn inter lingually in exchange for free CC degrees, and in terms of creative collective coding of Wikidata (now in about 300 languages) among many many other reasons.
Developments emerging from the above will eventually be added here - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_Information_Technologies_and_Data_Plan - including probably this blog post.
