Introducing World University School Chennai India Presentation January 15 2014

  1. 1. World University and School
  2. 2. Introducing World University and School An Open, Free, Online, Wiki World University and School – http://worlduniversity.wikia.com - like Wikipedia with MIT OpenCourseWare Scott MacLeod worlduniversityandschool@gmail.com
  3. 3. Degrees - as one wing WUaS is MIT Open Course Ware-centric (now in English and 8 other languages) MIT OCW http://ocw.mit.edu MIT OCW Audio and Video Courses http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses MIT OCW Translated Courses http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses
  4. 4. World University and School is - planning to offer the following, online, degrees - Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, I.B. and M.D., first in English, then in United Nation’s language, then in large languages + - MIT OCW-centric, which is now in English and 8 other languages, - and is also STEM-centric
  5. 5. Autumn 2014 WUaS is seeking students for our first, online matriculating, undergraduate class, in English, based on MIT OCW, (not endorsed by MIT) where students would take 32 courses over 4 years, for free, bachelor’s degrees. Apply to WUaS as if applying to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) worlduniversityandschool@gmail.com
  6. 6. Admissions at WUaS Admissions at WUaS http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Admissions_ at_World_University_and_School - Apply to WUaS as if applying to MIT - (We would like our students to up to speed to be able to transfer into MIT) - WUaS is moving toward selective admissions, but online education is scalable - Historic application opportunity for students for free, MIT-centric education, in early years
  7. 7. Ph.D., Law, I.B. & M.D. degrees first in English, where students would take MIT OCW courses for grades. Bachelor – 2014 Ph.D. – 2015 International Baccalaureate-high school (2015?) Law – 2016 M.D. - 2017 , then degrees in United Nations’ languages, and, for ex. Hindi, after 2015
  8. 8. Creative Commons’ Licensing WUaS is Creative Commons’ Licensed. C.C. is a new form of licensing and law emerging in the Information Age for legal sharing of online resources. MIT OCW and Wikipedia are also Creative Commons’ Licensed (C.C.), in contrast, for example, to edX and Coursera, two, other, online educational projects, which are not.
  9. 9. Accreditation WUaS is planning to accredit first with - BPPE in the state of California (Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education), and concurrently with - WASC senior (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) which also accredits Stanford and UC Berkeley and about 160 other western US colleges and universities, some internationally. WUaS plans to accredit internationally later.
  10. 10. Wiki - as the other wing WUaS is open and editable, like Wikipedia (now in 287 languages). YOU can begin a new subject page, for ex., or Teach what you’d like to your web cam, Youtube channel or otherwise teach to the web. Post what or when you're teaching to a World University and School Subject page, and eventually in any language http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects
  11. 11. All languages, All Countries WUaS is planning to be in all 7,105 languages (per “The Ethnologue”) http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages And in all 242 countries http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Nation_Stat es So, WUaS is open and editable as a wiki (Wikipedia is in 287 languages, by comparison) and each a MIT OCW-centric university or school
  12. 12. MIT OpenCourseWare 2,150 courses for free in English Creative Commons’ licensed for sharing Many courses are already translated into at least 8 non-English languages I’ve met with in person twice (2012 & 2013) with Steve Carson, MIT OCW External Relation’s Director, And there’s also a beautiful synergy between MIT OCW and WUaS
  13. 13. MIT OCW Sloan School of Management For example, here are the MIT OCW Sloan School of Management’s courses, for free – http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/sloan-school-ofmanagement -both undergraduate and graduate courses, -and Creative Commons’ licensed for sharing, - and so free. And here’s WUaS’s ‘Business Management,’ wiki, Subject page – http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Business_M anagement
  14. 14. Wikipedia and Wikidata Wikipedia is in 287 languages, with millions of articles, which we all wrote, thanks to Wiki technologies, and Wikipedia just developed and deployed the new, C.C., inter-lingual, WIKIDATA database, in which WUAS plans to develop. (Again, Wikipedia is Creative Commons’ licensed). Wikidata makes possible an all language, grass-roots, people-to-people, open, online learning conversation.
  15. 15. India and WUaS For example, India - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/India - Hindi language http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Hindi_langu age - Tamil language http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Tamil_langu age - Classical Indian Music
  16. 16. Hindi language WUaS Hindi language http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Hindi_langu age with potentially 1,000s and 10s of thousands of wiki pages, as this grows into a full university, in the Hindi language itself, and MIT OCW and great universities-centric, created by developers in India. Would you like to help develop this?
  17. 17. Hindi language WUaS Hindi language WUaS beginnings: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Hindi_langu age MIT OCW degrees planned in Hindi, as a large language: Bachelor’s degree (32 courses) Ph.D., Law, I.B. and M.D. Would you like to help develop this?
  18. 18. Tamil language WUaS Tamil language http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Tamil_langu age with potentially 1,000s and 10,000s of pages as this grows into a full university, in the Tamil language itself, and MIT OCW and great universities-centric, created by Indian developers Would you like to help develop this?
  19. 19. WUaS and Classical Indian Music - Classical Indian Music: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Classical_In dian_Music - Carnatic Music: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Carnatic Music -Eventually we’ll add all Indian musical instruments, each a wiki, Subject page, with real, real time music-making in Google + group video Hangouts
  20. 20. World University Music School World University Music School: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_Unive rsity_Music_School - All languages, all instruments - Each musical instrument a wiki page -Real, real time music making -in Google + group video Hangouts, for example
  21. 21. Creativity in Teaching & Learning You can teach creatively – add your lesson, course or any class to WUaS here now. Take any course or class you want, and talk about ideas ~ WUaS is about conversation as learning, in Wiki, with a MIT OCW academic standard. http://worlduniversity.wikia.com
  22. 22. Creative Potential & Openness Media Lab at WUaS – http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Media_Lab_ at_World_University_and_School ( and a course on 'Beings Enjoying Life’? http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Beings_Enjoying_Life ?) Teach what you want in the way you'd like to, both openly and academically, too. Add great articles, courses, instruction you find on the web, as well.
  23. 23. Interactivity in Learning For both degree and wiki WUaS wings, Teaching and learning interactivity takes place for ex., in Google + group video Hangouts and in virtual worlds like Second Life & OpenSim MIT Faculty in video, with graduate student instructors in Google + Hangouts for the Conference Method of Teaching and Learning http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Conference_Method_of_Teaching_and_Learning
  24. 24. Google + group video Hangout Examples of Google + Hangouts World University and School’s Youtube Channel http://youtube.com/WorldUnivAndSch (Linked with this Gmail ID worlduniversityandschool@gmail.com)
  25. 25. WUaS – Great University-centric In addition to MIT OpenCourseWare-centricity WUaS will wiki add great universities’ open and C.C. educational resources e.g. Stanford Engineering Everywhere WUaS seeks to become the MIT, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge, etc., of the Internet
