Golden Trout: WUaS would like to request of MIT that WUaS be able to use the following MIT OCW courses, Venezuela WUaS and Romanian WUaS, recent fascinating talk online at Princeton University on ISP access, Cecilia basically just said yes ... :))

Dear Cecilia (Associate Dean of Online Learning at MIT), 

Thank you for your prompt reply last week. 

WUaS would like to request of MIT that WUaS be able to use the following MIT OCW courses plus other undergraduate courses of the 2,300 in English, per the terms of use you sent, developing these in WUaS MediaWiki and adapting these in the related Wikidata / Wikibase database, eventually in many languages. 

These include the following courses that WUaS has sketched out for a possible first year of study by WUaS's first matriculated undergraduates beginning in 2017 - - as well as here in a beginning spreadsheet of "Courses for WUaS Credit" (which Larry Viehland put together last September 2015) - - as a starting place for a course catalog in the Wikidata database, which is developing with Linked Open Data, RDFs, and AI in other ways, and as a further form of adaptation of MIT OCW. 

Students applying to accrediting WUaS this summer would look through this page and at these courses, and select the courses they might plan to take beginning in autumn 2017, as part of their application process in the autumn of 2016.

Would it be ok for WUaS to use these courses in this way please? And given that the MIT OCW links may be seen in some of this WUaS course catalog process, can CC WUaS use these visible links as an additional form of attribution to CC MIT OCW as well please?

Thank you, 

Cecilia basically just said yes ...

N: Momentous day here in hearing back affirmatively from MIT Dean of online learning Cecilia d'Oliveira about CC MIT OCW - that CC WUaS can use and adapt CC MIT OCW in a wiki and as a course catalog in the Wikidata database, consistent with their licensing terms ... and re the Berkeley Law course WUaS is currently a "client" in.


Hi Ralph and Julian, 

Very nice to talk
