'''Mission:''' World University & School's mission (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University - like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware), 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.
Welcome to potential undergraduate students at World University and School in the autumn of 2014!
For the matriculating students in autumn 2014, WUaS seeks to develop a cohort approach to online, MIT OCW-centric education (with these MIT OCW audio and video courses in G+ Hangouts - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/audio-video-courses - to begin), and a first semester course of study in English, taking about 4 courses (vis-a-vis WUaS’s planned 32 MIT courses over 4 years for a free undergraduate degree) might look like this:
~ Humanities 101 (required)
~ First year Biology course with a programming component (required)
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/biology/7-01sc-fundamentals-of-biology-fall-2011 ?
~ Introduction to Computer Science and Programming
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-00sc-introduction-to-computer-science-and-programming-spring-2011/ ?
~ Information Technology and the Network Society
~ A MIT OCW Introductory Mathematics’ course
~ Media Arts’ MIT OCW course for undergraduates?
… all in Google + Hangouts, or similar, for interactivity.
