is planting the seed of a World Univ & Sch Media Lab ...
for open, WUaS digital innovation gardening -
'Media Lab at World University and School' -
for online, digital innovation !! :) Wow ... check out the Labs, under (new) 'Select Labs' ... they look fun :)
... link to come, - as well as online Museum exhibitions, that might articulate richly with the WUaS Media Lab -
In so many ways, World Univ & Sch is already a Media Lab, with an interest in becoming like MIT's, but online only ...
for you and all of us, for open, WUaS digital innovation gardening -
Innovate away at this upcoming WUaS Media Lab :)
Looks like taxes for U.S. nonprofits with property, especially, may be going up.
Check out this Boston example -
Cooper, Michael. 2011. Squeezed Cities Ask Nonprofits for More Money. May 12.
Advantages in going virtual, -
WUaS is offering a WHALE of 'community benefits' (per the article) ...
FREE educational software, for example.
In what ways might World University & School,
problems (MIT OCW)
TOGETHER WITH listening to the Grateful Dead or Mozart ...
New innovative approaches, with GREAT enjoyment, to LEARNING are so possible and many :)
Will every Subject page -
yea, every page (e.g. Museums, et al.),
have an easy, fun, creative 'Try Making This Digitally' section,
where you can make something online innovatively? :) What would this be for 'Anthropology' or 'Loving Bliss Eliciting'?
... and in the Music School, oui, oui :)
In so many ways, the WUaS faculty will become
or key facilitators
(because they know their subjects, esp. v-a-v innovation ahead, and as great faculty often are).
WUaS hopes to begin its FREE degree programs
(BA in 2014, PhD, Law, Medicine)
with MIT OCW (2,045 free courses presently) / Harvard
faculty streamed into virtual spaces ...
... with WUaS graduate students as in-world instructors/graders at http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/ . :)
In year 3 of the WUaS medical school (2019?),
with possible, first matriculating class in 2017,
after developing the WUaS BA, Ph.D., Law degree programs,
with 1st matriculating classes in 2014 2015 & 2016, respectively,
hopefully with MIT OCW & Harvard open courses,
will the physical site be Stanford Medical Centers?
Love it :) ... bird landing :)
thinks it looks like WUaS's 'products' are its free BA, PhD, Law, & MD programs,
along with each virtual class of students it produces
(hopefully with a kind MIT OCW, Stanford & Harvard collaborative, educational initiative for open courses).
Hmmm, - expanding definition of PRODUCT emerging - Love it :).
Perhaps some graduates will write a lot of fascinating code along the way,
and otherwise produce ... digitally,
and bequest their companies to WUAS, like Amar Bose did to MIT.
... and faculty & students' papers, dissertations, & projects, of course, are 'products,' of a sort ...
