Hi Kyle (Julian, Diana, and All),
Thanks very much for your email, and in reply to this thread. As you may know, World University and School seeks to be greatest online high schools in all ~200 countries' official languages emerging from this CC MIT OCW - https://ocw.mit.edu/high-sch
ool/ - https://ocw.mit.edu/cou rses/ocw-scholar/ - so these high schools would be free (albeit World Univ & Sch would seek reimbursement from governments and ministries of education in all ~200 countries per student per year probably). Courses such as the ones above will emerge in the new wiki based on a blueprint like this - http://worlduniversity. wikia.com/wiki/WUaS_ International_Baccalaureate_ Diploma_and_Programme - with two courses at the top, and then develop - so this is the mock curricular overview. David Thurston, newly among these email recipients, may be able to help focus finding high achieving online students out of the Washington DC area, conceptually, for free CC MIT OCW High School (possibly I.B.) diplomas. Curriculum-wise, we probably would also explore building out of a Harvard GSHE (e.g. Prof Karen Brennan, with a Ph.D. from the MIT Media Lab), Phillips Academy Andover (John Palfrey and Urs Gasser's book Born Digital), Khan Academy, MITx in edX thinking as well, in addition to your thinking. Interactive face to face, fun, Stanford High School, in 10 people group video Hangouts would be part of this as well.
On the WUaS Corp side - the for-profit side (of which you three are Board / Officers), here again are our ten planned revenue streams - https://worlduniversityandsc
hool.blogspot.com/2017/06/ wuas-corporations-10-planned- for-profit.html (also here in the 14 planned revenue streams - https://worlduniversityandscho ol.blogspot.com/2016/01/14-pla nned-wuas-revenue-streams.html ).
And here again is the WUaS Corp's Business Plan - https://docs.google.com/docume
nt/d/12GqcLW_PrcCCQpwNKDF8AqNw tWxYMNUG1h-TfnpbPXw/edit?usp= sharing.
Please OWN these, Kyle, Diana and Julian.
Again these revenue streams are all planned as academic markets in ~200 countries' languages and 7,099 living languages at WUaS.
And I hope the conversation between WUaS's two wings will grow and become very generative (which is an interesting process if we get to be a million strong, 800,000 graduate students or students working 10 hours per week; Wikipedia has begun to address some of these questions of communication in a growing wiki-organization with an estimated 200-500 employees, and in 358 languages).
In response to this email thread, Lydia Pintscher, product manager for Wikidata (to which WUaS donated itself in October 2015, getting us access to Miraheze Mediawiki), said she's on vacation until Nov 14th. I'm hopeful that we'll have a developing web platform for all of the above on the MIT OCW-centric non-profit side here soon, and potentially upon her return after November 14th. I also hope the beginnings of the 1) the WUaS bookstore/computer store (with CC-O commercial licensing) and 2) the WUaS Academic Press with machine translation both in 295 languages, will emerge out of WUaS in Miraheze MediaWiki/Wikidata with new SUBJECT TEMPLATE.
For planning purposes in this, Julian, Kyle and Diana in the online WUaS Bookstore, I'm glad the WUaS Press's first book product has recently been carried online on VIRTUAL SHELVES of Wal-mart - https://www.walmart.com/ip/
Naked-Harbin-Ethnography- Hippies-Warm-Pools- Counterculture-Clothing- Optionality-and-Virtual- Harbin/672874383 (in addition to Amaz) - (with more information here - https://scott-macleod. blogspot.com/2017/11/daucus- carota-in-developing-law- schools.html ), so these pages could become templates / examples for WUaS's book pages in English, and could then extend to the other 358 languages (per Lydia) in Wikipedia.
Thanks again for your communication and email, Kyle. Let's see if we can generate more of a conversation among us - as the kind of core WUAS Corp team, as we grow. (More in other emails). Questions, thoughts, ideas?
All the best,
(and heading even toward bliss in learning by matriculated students in the shared code of WUaS:),
