Dear Cecilia and Anant (and Larry),
I'm writing you, with your oversights of CC MIT OCW and MITx, and edX, with some CC World University and School (WUaS) questions, where WUaS is CC MIT OCW-centric (in its 7 languages) and also CC Yale OYC-centric, as well as CC Wikipedia/Wikidata-centric (in its 358 languages). As you may know, CC World University is planning to offer accrediting online free-to-students CC OCW university (bachelor, Ph.D., law and M.D.) and high school (potentially I.B.) degrees - in all ~200 countries' main and official languages.
Cecilia, since we corresponded last year about some of this (and just this week have generated the Articles of Incorporation to begin WUaS's forking process, which are in the process of being filed with the state of California), and Anant, since you've taught "Circuits and Electronics" both as a MIT OCW course and as a MITx course and since you're the president of edX, I'm writing to ask please about WUaS possibly offering MITx courses (from CC MIT OCW) for credit toward degrees.
Recently H Mohammed in Khartoum city, Sudan, north Africa, and WUaS have been corresponding. He's interested in studying biomedical engineering, engineering or EE/CS at MIT OCW-centric WUaS and has shared with us his secondary school transcript. While his first language is Arabic, I think his English may suffice for him to begin taking MIT OCW and Yale OYC courses in English for credit.
WUaS has long planned to offer courses for credit from CC MIT OCW and CC Yale OYC, with graduate students in group video, teaching to the the MIT and Yale faculty. WUaS seeks to facilitate online opportunities for graduate students becoming faculty to teach, potentially in all 7,099 living languages; WUaS is also planning wiki schools for open teaching and learning in all languages.
But as I think about this further, MIT OCW in MITx in edX seems very relevant to Hashim's interests from the Sudan, since he said he doesn't have the internet bandwidth yet for group video, yet can receive some video in email, he wrote.
In searching further about this, I found MIT OCW as MITx - https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/
mitx-related-courseware/ - aka "MITx Courses and Related OCW Courseware." I then looked up "biomedical engineering" in edX on a smartphone and 4 courses came up, "medical engineering" and 5 courses came up, "engineering" and 220 courses came up, and "computer science" and 292 courses came up.
So I'm writing to ask if World University and School could please explore collaboration with MITx in edX? And in such a collaboration, could WUaS please begin to offer some of these edX courses with MIT OCW courses for degrees, as WUaS proceeds with plans for accreditation (potentially with WASC senior), and as WUaS seeks also to develop CC OCW for online law and medical schools, (potentially with Stanford)? WUaS is planning to seek donations from governments in all ~200 countries for free CC OCW WUaS degrees - with Yale's upcoming tuition of $51,400 per year/student as a possible benchmark - and would gladly collaborate with the MIT Office of Digital Learning and edX around this as well.
Thank you, and nice to correspond with you last year, Cecilia.
