(Online, wiki, virtual World University & School, with its first, matriculating, bachelor's degree class in 2015, and with its free bachelor's, Ph.D., Law and M.D. degrees, accrediting on best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare, will be able to STUDY HOW students learn, quite rigorously, - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Research - because this will be mediated by the internet, and WUaS is offering these degrees for free. Reed College's undergraduate degrees, with its required 1st year Humanities course, its junior qualifying exams, and its senior thesis, plus a required freshman, WUaS biology class with computer programming requirements, and further widespread computer programming requirements, the equivalent of 32 Yale OYC / MIT OCW/great (and rigorous) courses over approximately 4 years, and with a significant STEM science/mathematics/engineering/technology focus - is the main model for WUaS's undergraduate degrees presently. WUaS hopes to collaborate richly with best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare in the process).
