Dear Universitians and friends, 

Please join us at our open (hour-long) World University and School monthly business meeting this Saturday, November 12, at 9am Pacific Time (1700 UTC), in a conference call. 

News and Agenda

World University and School is proceeding to file For-Profit legal papers with the state of California and the US government, FORKING in the process to complement our current 501 c 3 Non-Profit status - in WUaS's second semester in a row in the UC Berkeley Law "New Business Practicum" course. WUaS's forking will take shape around these 14 Planned Revenue Streams - WUaS is planning to become CC Universities on its non-profit wing in all ~200 countries' main and official languages - the "Harvards of the Web."

WUaS has recently inquired with a number of people about them joining the WUaS For-Profit Board, and 4 people have expressed interest. If you would like to talk further about joining the WUaS For-Profit Board of Directors, please reply to this email.   

WUaS will speak with Harvard Medical School's Dr. Katz (at Brigham and Women's Hospital) later this month about possible collaborations re CC World University and School's planned online medical schools, and online teaching hospitals (, in all ~200 countries' main and official languages. WUaS would be very interested in having the Harvard Medical School inform all WUaS's online Med Schools in all ~206 (per the recent Olympics) countries' official + languages. 

Scott helped to host the Wikidata 4th birthday party in San Francisco on Wednesday October 26th, with a photo here - WUaS, having donated CC WUaS to CC Wikidata last October 2015 around this time, also celebrated its own birthday in Wikidata. WUaS also hopes to begin building out of Wikidata (which is developing for CC Wikipedia's 358 languages) into a new wiki in the next few months, first by adding CC MIT OCW in 7 languages (and CC Yale OYC) to CC Wikidata, first for a course catalog and student application/registration process ("You at WUaS").  

Scott continues to post nearly daily about World University and School developments here -

Volunteers sought to help further develop wiki World University and School in multiple ways (and languages). No experience necessary. Please reply if interested in this creative opportunity. 

7 WUaS has two new newspapers - 

The World University and School Daily and  - The MIT OpenCourseWare Daily - with which WUAS is experimenting. Both carry this subtitle - "a) MIT is not affiliated with, and does not endorse, World University and School b) MIT does not offer credit to WUaS students, and c) All MIT OpenCourseWare materials are available for free" per communications with MIT Dean Cecilia d'Oliveira this spring.
