Dear Bill and All,
Thanks so much for this information from Cooley, Bill - https://www.cooley.com/eds-proposed-rules-for-online-learning-new-compliance-challenges. I just posted in these regards yesterday something on WUaS's Twitter feed re John Mayer's similar update - https://twitter.com/
Re WUaS in another Berkeley Law course this fall, perhaps remotely, glad to learn of these further developments https://t.co/edt1kQZhNU— WorldUnivandSch (@WorldUnivAndSch) July 25, 2016
This is particularly helpful and timely information since these US Education Department developments will inform how World University and School begins to develop our "You at WUaS" database - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/You_at_World_University - in CC Wikidata (Wikipedia's 3.5 year old database developing in 358 languages). WUaS heard back directly from Wikidata's Lydia Pintscher about developing this a few weeks ago. WUaS is planning for a) student applications in all countries' main and official languages, b) matriculating students and their transcripts for free CC Bachelor, Ph.D., law, M.D. degrees, and I.B. high school diplomas, (again in all countries' main and official languages), and c) accreditation probably with WASC senior, and incubated by the University of California.
Not for profit, 501 (c) (3) WUaS's model is still a kind of MIT or Stanford model (with their great STEM ethoses), where students would matriculate at CC WUaS (accrediting on CC MIT OCW - http://ocw.mit.edu/ - in 7 languages - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/ - and CC Yale OYC - http://oyc.yale.edu - in Google group video Hangouts with graduate student instructors teaching to the MIT and Yale faculty in video, for planning purposes) from all 50 states and from all 204 countries too (albeit online and not in Cambridge or Palo Alto) and where the individual states' requirements (per the US Education Department) are not really relevant to MIT or Stanford.
WUaS would still nevertheless have to seek to comply with U.S. states' requirements since we are online.
