World University and School {in a virtual world}

Welcome to World University and School Wiki
which anyone can add to or edit.
The Global, Virtual/Digital, Open, Free, {potentially Degree- and Credit-Granting},
Multilingual University & School
where anyone can teach or take a class or course


Welcome to World University and School, a global, virtual, digital, open, (potentially degree-granting - bachelor, Ph.D., I.B., law, M.D., & Music School, etc.), free-to-students, university and school, with great universities (e.g. MIT OCW, Ivy League Schools, Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, Oxford, T.U.M., Sorbonne, L.M.U., Juilliard Music School, Cambridge, Collège de France, Cal Tech, B.T.U., University of Chicago, etc.) as key web content generators, based on a Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware model, especially for the developing world, and for everyone.


Mission

World University & School's (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University - like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware) - mission, in reaching out to the entire world, is to provide a free, wiki-based education platform and, through facilitating the development of broadband worldwide, to make our service accessible to under served parts of the world. The WUaS mission is thus to facilitate all levels of teaching and learning opportunities (and future degrees) through an open, editable wiki in all languages, nation-states and subjects with great universities, and for One Laptop per Child countries and everyone.


Business Plan

To facilitate all levels of teaching and learning opportunities (and potentially degrees, eventually) through an open, editable wiki in all languages, nation-states and subjects with great universities, and for One Laptop per Child countries and everyone, World University and School needs an endowment which we will seek to grow through grants and other funding sources.

(Master Plan)

(Marketing Plan)


World University & School's “customers” are the educators and learners - potentially the whole, wired, teaching and learning world.

As an open, free University and School, like MIT Open Course Ware, WUaS will aggregate, facilitate people teaching, and innovate digitally educationally.


Thus far, World University and School has been on the internet for about 4 years. Without funding we've accomplished the following.

World University and School would like to build a $1.5 trillion U.S. dollar endowment in the first 10 years, and an additional $1.5 trillion dollar endowment, in the second 10 years.



WUaS Business

World University and School will raise funds for World University and School's endowment.

The primary goal of this business is to build an endowment of U.S. $1.5 trillion (in 2009 dollars) in 10 years (by 2020) to support development of World University and School, and another U.S. $1.5 trillion in the second 10 years (by 2030).

We would like to make an university and school for all One Laptop Per Child countries, and indeed all languages, nation states, subjects, and levels.

The WUaS foundation will pay a large network of teachers and salaries, partner with great universities, and facilitate connecting with the poorest parts of the world and the developing world.



Fundraising Plan

Most schools have their monies in the following spheres:

1) general, - philanthropists / individuals, online bookstore / computer store

2) plant, - online, developing, virtual campus, with rentals

3) endowment, and

4) grants - companies, governments, philanthropic organizations.

WUaS plans to focus its financial operations in the specific areas in these spheres.

Like One Laptop per Child relationships with countries and governments


For this 2009 tax year, we'd like to raise $400,000.

$1 million in 2010



Endowment goals

Fiscal year, 2013 (ending December 31, 2013):

$200,000 dollars in this first year


= $30,000 in January 2013, and $85,000 in each subsequent month

1 million dollars in the 2nd year

20 million dollars in the 3rd year

30 million in the 4th year

100 million in the 5th year

200 million in the 6th year

300 million in the 7th year

400 million in the 8th year

500 million in the 9th year

leading to $1.5 trillion in the 10th year


Compensation for Universitians (what World University calls its participants).

Goal in 2010: $1,000,000 the first year, the remainder of which doesn't get spent (below $600,000?) goes into the Endowment


1 General Manager $70,000 – who is the Go To person 1 Head Fundraiser $50,000 - (+ 50% of 1st $100,000, 40% of next $250,000 they raise) – to build a growing team of fundraisers. Develops plan for $1.5 trillion endowment over 10 years.

Each of these could hire 1-5 interns in the first year.


While WUaS is 'placeless,' a number of the first Universitians live in or around Berkeley, California, and we'd like to hire, for example, 2-10 UC Berkeley or Stanford University interns @ $11.50 an hour (but also, potentially, the brightest 20-25 year old students in the world e.g. MIT, Ivy League students, University of Tokyo, Michigan, Cambridge, Oxford, Berlin, etc.) for up to 20 hours a week, posting the job possibilities on the WUaS wiki page. We'd like to then hire 20-100 interns in the 2nd year.


The initial intern positions would focus on the following:

Intern positions

The following would report to the 'Head of Fundraising and Fiduciary Responsibility' (a Quaker):

1 intern head of grant writing (e.g. Bill and Melinda Gates' foundation, Buffett, Sloan, Soros, Silicon Valley computer company foundations, all of the Domini Social Equity Corporations' Foundations (companies that have met socially responsible and activist screens) 1 intern head of corporate liaisons (where WUaS could offer accounting courses for companies, and related course development as 'thank you' courses, for significant grants) 1 intern head of U.C. Berkeley Anthropology Department? liaison for pension and health benefits 1 intern head of accounting 1 intern head of communication with Board members (for 5 person clerk board and for 100+ person board – a board member in every major city in the world?) 1 intern head of endowment management and planning (socially-conscious mutual fund indexing approach).



The following report to the General Manager:

1 intern head of WUaS Universitian community building – like Wikipedians – Everyone can teach – new content generators with web cameras 1 intern head of wiki Academic sections, for eventual degrees 1 intern head of One Laptop per Child wiki languages' development 1 intern head of wiki, new, open Teaching and Learning content aggregation 1 intern head of wiki and other Information Technology technical development – including Google Wave 1 intern head of languages' development – liaison with other WUaS languages 1 intern head of nation-state wiki – and eventual accreditation in each 1 intern head of Second Life island development 1 intern head of New Intern Development – nascent Human Resources position – job descriptions 1 intern head of legal questions - Creative Commons law 1 intern head of outreach, marketing and branding 1 intern head of Minutes for all the committees, each of the above being a committee, facilitating and training other recording clerks 1 intern head of Medical School and hospital development 1 intern head of Music School 1 intern head of Design 1 intern head of New Schools (e.g. Law, Veterinary, Dental)


Business Plan Committee … (Board)



for FTEs

Health insurance Pension (as independent 501 c 3, partnering with the Berkeley Department of Anthropology?).


Add 2 to 100 interns a year?

What happens with faster growth … and more resources?


Educational purpose


Initial incorporation documents

Articles of incorporation Bylaws Minutes of first meeting of the board of directors


Secretary


Clerks' Board

General Board for ideas / resources

Ph.D.s on Board to guide it toward accreditation


A Business Manager / Economist – Wharton? A MBA?

Someone knowledgeable and experienced with 501 c 3s



Someone knowledgeable about making a college a university – Professor Larry Viehland


Someone experience with raising a trillion dollars endowment – Harvard Business School?


Someone experienced with managing rapid growth, and executing a business plan … to go from 0 Universitians to 100s of paid Universitians … and a much larger volunteer community of Universitians, like Wikipedians...


Someone experienced with a multiple LANGUAGES' wiki, with a group-knowledge focus


Someone knowledgeable about Creative Commons legal questions … vis-a-vis a wiki, if necessary


Someone Quaker-oriented with a focus on funding and scaling



Outreach

Initially we'll target Wikia and open source users (Wikipedia, GlobalVoicesOnline.org), and students at great universities, and OLPC languages, and expand from there.




World University and School is in the process of incorporating and has 5 board members, a C.F.O./treasurer and a secretary/recording clerk.


We're not only developing education jobs (we would like to hire a lot of Ph.D.s, after interns), we would also like to build everything associated with modern education, almost exclusively digitally. For example, an online hospital for teaching and learning, an online dental school, veterinary medicine school, etc., as well as potentially develop hardware like video-capable, wireless handheld devices, for 3000-8000 languages. WUaS is open to all subjects, but will stay away from weapons, bomb, nuclear-weapon and related teaching and learning material. In creating World University & School, we're developing a free, open, virtual university & school, potentially in all languages, nation states, subjects and at all levels.

WUaS is a compelling idea that needs support to be realized.





"All Ways Free" to students. Budget for this in perpetuity (perhaps like Tokyo University and Scandinavian universities).

WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources

Ideas

"Most schools have their money in roughly four buckets: 1) general, 2) plant, 3) endowment, and 4) grants. Most for-profits, Jim notes, have just one such bucket; the nature of the accounting in schools is different in this important way. There are three types of money: 3) permanently restricted (e.g., many endowed funds); 2) temporarily restricted (e.g., grants and other “use-it-or-lose-it money”); and 3) unrestricted (within reason; the board can still constrain its usage somewhat, if needed). Jim emphasized the importance for heads of institutions to be the “translator” of the financial issues related to the school for the community at large. He cites to Herzlinger’s four questions that we (as leaders and trustees) should ask about the financials regularly: 1) are the organization’s goals consistent with its resources?; 2) are the sources and uses of resources matched?; 3) is there intergenerational equity?; and, 4) are present resources sustainable? ”High performing organizations aren’t just lucky,” Jim tells us. Another good line: in education, “you can’t cut your way to prosperity.”" (Harvard business school Professor James P. Honan)
