MIT OpenCourseWare-centric World University and School's online, free, Creative Commons' university degrees, with first, undergraduate, class in English planned for this autumn - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Admissions_at_World_University_and_School - plans also to study how students and others learn, and multi-lingually.
(In addition to the above HarvardX study, here's another interesting, recent,, 1/21/14 Harvard, data-focused example of studying Wikipedians - http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/events/luncheon/2014/01/hargittai-shaw).
WUaS plans to contribute to such studies inter-lingually.
(WUaS is planned for all 7,105 language; Wikipedia is in 287 languages, by way of comparison, and WUaS is like Wikipedia with MIT OCW).
Here's the open-ended (for academic and 'creative'), main, wiki, Subjects' page at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects - for open, wiki teaching and learning.
In addition to offering a MIT OCW-centric alternative, free degree opportunity, vis-a-vis the student debt problem in many countries, WUaS would like to generate a flourishing, multilingual, knowledge-generative conversation, and become the Harvard / MIT of the internet and in all languages and countries.
