Please support World University and School in its work for MIT OCW-centric, online degrees, and worldwide learning! WUaS is a global, digital, open, free-to-students, multilingual university & school, where anyone can teach or take a class or course; it's like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware. World University and School is an education and service organization that can change thousands of lives each year.
Quaker-informed World University & School is seeking undergraduate students for free, online, MIT OCW-centric, bachelor’s degrees to apply in the autumn of 2013, for matriculation in autumn 2014 - http://scottmacleod.com/WUaSFriendsFlyerforProspectiveStudentApplicants.pdf - and is already open for learning as wiki. You or anyone can teach a course or take a class now at wiki (editable web pages) WUaS, and WUaS is planning to do this in all 7,413 + languages, and < 205 countries, potentially with many, free degrees, or at any level of education.
We are planning five degrees - Bachelor, Law, I.B., M.D., and Ph.D. - with matriculating classes in 2014 in English. To support these free, MIT OCW-centric, Creative Commons’ licensed degrees, WUaS seeks to raise $100,000 in our 2012 capital campaign, and $125, 000 in next year's campaign. Come join WUaS’s Gold, Silver or Bronze Giving Circles here -
http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/$100,000_Capital_Campaign_at_World_University_and_School_for_2012 - before our fiscal year ends on December 31, 2012. If you’d like to help volunteer at World University and School, we’ve recently begun the ‘Association for WUaS’ - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Association_for_World_University_and_School - to help with merchandising WUaS, for example, in WUaS’s upcoming, online Bookstore / Computer store - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Bookstore_/_Computer_Store_(New_&_Used)_at_WUaS.
And World University & School plans to expand steadily to make teaching and learning materials available in all language and countries, each a wiki page to begin. WUaS is designing this educational resource to work on "One Laptop Per Child" computers in Rwanda, Ethiopia, Colombia, Haiti, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Cambodia, & Papua New Guinea. These resources will also work on video-capable, programmable, mobile phone-like devices ("broadband video on a handheld computer"). And people in developing world countries can add their own teaching and learning resources to World University's wiki (editable, web pages). MIT Open Course Ware will be our model for degree-granting, academic, course work. With the interactive Google + video hangouts +, and virtual worlds, it's now possible to engage with almost every aspect of learning which occurs in the classroom, especially INTERACTIVELY, through group video, group voice communication, group text chat, as well as video streaming. On its own and in connection with these technologies, World University and School has the potential to generate a remarkable archive of courses over time.
