Wikidata office hour just now in IRC
This conversation is significant partly because it focuses for WUAS how MIT OCW will be added to Wikidata, with much significance to WUaS (per WUaS's recent conversation with MIT Dean of Online Learning re Creative Commons' licensing which allows sharing and adaptation) ... particularly with regard to this Wikidata MIT OCW Qitem (or Q item) - https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1637597 ...

[09:46] <> Lydia_WMDE: I have a question of how best, after WUaS's donation of WUaS to Wikidata last autumn, to further develop WUaS in Wikidata, perhaps building on Magnus Manske example above and anticipating voice too. This is after an extensive email correspondence with MIT Dean of Online Learning Cecilia d'Oliveira and former Executive Director of MIT OCW, and CC WUaS sharing and adapting CC MIT OCW in 7 languages in CC Wikidata under Creative Commons' licensing.
[09:47] <Lydia_WMDE> Scott_WUaS: I think a good next step is to have a look at Wikidata's properties and see if any are missing that you need to express what you want.
[09:50] <> Thanks, Lydia. I don't think many or any of 2300 MIT OCW courses in English are there, and similarly neither are the 6 other languages (~50-100 courses) - https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:List_of_properties/all
[09:51] <> And here's the MIT OCW Qitem - https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1637597
[09:51] < > Ok. Any other questions? We have about 10 mins left.
[09:53] <> How best to add these MIT OCW to Wikidata, Lydia - in order to share and adapt them under the MIT OCW CC licensing?
[09:55] <Lydia_WMDE> Scott_WUaS: I can't say as I am not familiar enough with the data unfortunately.
[09:58] <> One important aspect of adding all of CC MIT OCW to Wikidata would be anticipating Wikipedia's remaining ~293 ish languages and further machine translation even of MIT OCW into these languages re WUaS ... I'm not familiar enough with this data either ... is there someone you might suggest I ask about this possibly please, Lydia_WMDE?
[10:04] <> Thank you, Lydia+WMDE!
[10:04] <> DanielK_WMDE: How best to add these CC MIT OCW in 7 languages to Wikidata - in order to share and adapt them under the MIT OCW CC licensing and re WUaS accrediting?
