Minutes for January 13, 2018 World University & School Monthly Business Meeting
- Larry Viehland (Board Chair and CFO/Treasurer of World University and School)
- Scott MacLeod (President, Presiding Clerk and Recording Clerk of World University and School)
World University and School seeks to grow its team, conceptually, emerging from collaborations with MIT, Stanford, Google and Wikimedia/Wikipedia, and eventually to engage the academic and organizational hiring practices of these organizations, - and in all ~200 nation states’ official languages as well as wiki schools in all 7,099 living languages.
Re World University and School "independent study" courses for credit, WUaS seeks too to explore a possible collaboration with MIT OCW into MITx “self paced” courses, among other ways of academic advising.
World Univ & Sch's first matriculated class is continuing into 2018!
Re free CC MIT OCW-centric degree focus, where WUaS in its MIT OCW-centricity seeks in the beginning to be a kind of a self-accrediting organization. As WUaS grows WUaS interested in exploring whether WUaS could collaborate with edX for their MIT OCW into MITx courses (i.e. https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mitx-related-courseware/) and with regard to accreditation too; at World University and School, MIT OCW-centricity is WUaS’s standard for self-accreditation, allowing for the development of creative computing learning environment, in all ~200 countries official languages, and wiki-wise in all 8,461 languages.
The IRS accepted World Univ and Sch's 990 tax form this morning, January 14, 2018 so World University and School continues as a 510 c 3 non-profit organization.
In a related vein, World University and School should be getting Google "Knowledge Panel" soon, per this communication from Google around December 11 , 2017:
“Where can users donate to my nonprofit on Google?
Currently, users in eligible countries searching for your nonprofit directly on Google.com will see a donation button in your nonprofit's Knowledge Panel, after you have signed up to receive donations. “ … https://support.google.com/donations/answer/7570174?hl=en&ref_topic=7569204
World Univ and Sch's home page - http://worlduniversityandschool.org - is due for a remake and in planning for free CC OCW DEGREES, and WIKI schools in all 8,461 entries in languages WUaS would like to develop in these directions: https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/01/gentiana-acaulis-in-what-ways-will-we.html ...
