WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources


I have a current, particular interest in MIT OpenCourseWare, so will add, teach and learn, with related resources, - but this page is for teaching and learning about the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT, as a whole. I'm particularly interested in creativity and innovation aspects of MIT vis-a-vis WUaS. (S.M.).

WUaS is MIT-centric.

Publish my article in a WUaS academic journal in this subject

Open Journal Systems. 2012. Open Journal Systems. Public Knowledge Project.

(WUaS's wiki, information technologies and criteria for this - informed by the WUaS academic journal subject matter - are developing, since you can already publish your article at http://www.academia.edu).
