In what ways can WUaS's business students focus on developing startup online businesses with less and less of physical presences?
And in all countries and their main and official languages?
Thanks for a fascinating ISSIP presentation recently and nice to meet you. (My grandfather went to MIT and was a chemical engineer).
Some questions I had during your are as follows:
If English is EIT's main language, how many languages could you see value in teaching in in Europe other than English? Innovating in?
What are the inter-country European accreditation approaches you take particularly for the EIT Doctoral program?
In what ways is EIT Digital (http://eit.europa.eu/eit-community/eit-digital and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Institute_of_Innovation_and_Technology), of which you are the director, focusing on developing startup online businesses with less and less of physical presences?
World University and School, a huge project I'm developing, is like Wikipedia with best STEM CC OpenCourseWare (e.g. planning to accredit on CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC to offer online bachelor, Ph.D., law and M.D. to begin). WUaS is planning to develop major online Universities in all ~204 nation states in their main languages. As you probably know, the MIT Sloan School of Business's courses are all posted at MIT OCW, and an amazing resource. WUaS also has a language focus, planning to create wiki schools in all 7,943 languages for open teaching and learning. Currently WUaS is a "client" in a UC Berkeley Law "New Business Practicum" class, and developing this business plan -http://
worlduniversityandschool. blogspot.com/2016/01/14- planned-wuas-revenue-streams. html - around a CC 501 c 3 tax example Creative Commons' Core, but seeking as a non-profit accrediting university to develop a commercial side, even a for-profit side (entrepreneurially) in all countries' and their main languages.
WUaS, which will be online as much as possible, is very interested in opening ways for our students in all countries' main languages to successfully begin online businesses as they study for their degrees. Could this help to transform, for example, Europe's immigrant challenges, if folks from Africa and the Middle East, could make a comfortable living from home in the countries in which they were born - and thanks to online WUaS degrees and teaching entrepreneurialism in their languages? I think you may have much knowledge about all of this Marko, which I and WUaS so far lack.
I'm wondering in what ways we might develop fruitful collaborations in these respects and in many other ways.
Would you like to meet for coffee sometime in the next weeks, if you're in town, in downtown SF to talk further about some of this?
Thanks again for a fascinating ISSIP talk today.
Very nice to talk with you, and thank you for meeting. Appreciating your thinking, and thanks again for your great ISSIP presentation (and to Jim Spohrer as well). How might I or WUaS be of help to you or with EIT or your project in the US?
Here's the blog entry on Stanford University Online High School with videos, and also with the video of President John Hennessey which I watch as a "blueprint" to create a world class university: http://scott-

Here too is my ISSIP presentation on an Universal Translator - https://www.slideshare.net/
mobile/issip/world-university- and-school (also accessible here - http://scott-macleod.blogspot. com/2015/03/beluga-whale- course-in-1000-languages.html) . Here's the beginning of the WUaS Universal Translator -http://worlduniversity.wikia. com/wiki/WUaS_Universal_ Translator.
And here are the two single courses Jim Spohrer suggested WUaS might offer to undergraduates and graduate students for T-shaped professionals, each pointing to complexity - http://
worlduniversityandschool. blogspot.com/2016/01/what- single-mit-ocw-course-might- be.html - and after the taking of which WUaS may seek, in developing our WUaS/Industry relations, to help them get a job. And this URL is also WUaS's blog.
I wonder in what ways we might further collaborate, Marko. I see potential brainstorming-wise re ... a) coding, b) Finland WUaS, c) your kids matriculating for Ph.Ds at WUaS, d) MIT OCW centric WUaSs in European countries' main languages, e) your teaching at WUaS, f) your creating the WUaS Media Lab in all languages (http://worlduniversity.wikia.
com/wiki/Media_Lab_at_World_ University_and_School), and g) financial collaborations, among other possibilities. It would be great to keep the conversation open about all of this. What few projects would you most enjoy doing, if you could do anything?
