As a MIT OCW-centric, startup World University and School, is WUaS ELITE?
Concerning the word elite ...
While WUaS is Creative Commons' licensed,
and will be C.C. MIT OCW-centric
(with 2,150 courses; Yale's 42 OYC courses are also C.C.), -
WUaS will be free on the degree side.
On the wiki-school side of WUaS, we can all teach to each other via web cams, creating subject pages, etc.
WUaS also seeks overachievers, such as do apply to and get into MIT, H., Y., P., Stanford, Cambridge, etc., but especially, for example, those in wheelchairs and who might not have the financial resources to pay for HYP etc. And WUaS would love to have Quaker physics' students, for example, who mght also apply to Haverford, etc ... especially for graduate degrees.
WUAS will offer a 32 brain candy course requirement for MIT OCW undergrads and try to become Harvard and STEM MIT of the internet, especially at the graduate level.
So elite or 'populist for overachievers' since free and wiki and CC where anyone can create a course in any language?
