WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources[]


Welcome to potential undergraduate students at World University and School applying in the autumn of 2015, and matriculating online in autumn 2016!

For the matriculating students in autumn 2016, WUaS seeks to develop a cohort approach to online, best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare education (with these Yale OYC and MIT OCW audio and video courses in G+ Hangouts to begin), and a first semester's course of study in English, taking about 4 courses (vis-a-vis WUaS’s planned 32 best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare courses over 4 years for a free undergraduate degree) might look like this:

~ Humanities 101 (required) - see:

~ First year Biology course with a programming component (required) ?

~ Introduction to Computer Science and Programming ?

~ Information Technology and the Network Society

~ A best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare Introductory Mathematics’ course

~ Media Arts’ best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare course for undergraduates?

… all in Google + Hangouts, or similar, for interactivity.

Begin studying, teaching, learning or creating now at this online, free College at WUaS, at the Subjects' page - - or at this best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare Courses' page -

WUaS plans to accredit on best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare with WASCsenior, in California, for its first, matriculating, Bachelor's degree class, in the U.S. and in English (to start), in 2016.

(Online, wiki, virtual World University & School, with its first, matriculating, Bachelor's degree class in 2016, 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, - - because this will be mediated by the web, 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 science/mathematics/engineering/technology focus - is the main model for WUaS's undergraduate degrees presently. WUaS hopes to collaborate richly with MIT OCW - - in the process).

WUaS plans to offer something like 36 majors, based on these MIT OCW 36 main subject areas - - as well as excel in science, technology, engineering and mathematics' fields.

WUaS will eventually accredit in at least 50-100 languages/countries, and as many as possible, to offer free, online, best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare degrees.

Accreditation to offer Bachelor degrees is a 3 stage process, with WASC, with WUaS's first, matriculating, Bachelor's degree class in 2016 (graduating in 2020). WUaS plans to graduate 1000 students, every year, with a Bachelor's degree, in the online, free college.

WUaS is planning for a "Admitted Students' Day" for the first, matriculating Bachelor's degree class, on or around Saturday, April 14th, 2016, and the second Saturday of April for other degrees in the future.

World University & School may target Android/iPhone/ smart phone mobile internet devices with video, and group text chat for the conference method - - of teaching and learning, as the bare minimum hardware to begin to study for a best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare Bachelor's degree.

Like Reed College, Harvard College, the colleges at Yale, Princeton, Stanford and Cambridge, but free, online and developing and changing with the web.

In developing the World University and School, online, best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare High School (Creative Commons' licensed)-centric, free 'International Baccalaureate Diploma and Programme' (highest quality - e.g. P.A. Exeter?) - - WUaS will probably focus on these United Nations' languages only - Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), English, French, Russian, Spanish ... as a feed-in to The College at WUaS - - (potentially in many of the 3000-8000 languages, but starting with English in 2016) ...

I'm curious about the cultivating the role of parents in the home, in co-learning with their matriculated, undergraduate kids in 2016 (possibly 2,000 students and many of them 18-22 year olds), and beyond, at The College at WUaS ... ... How to invite parents in (or not) to the best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare learning conversation, for fun, so that all learn, but such sociality is potentially beneficial with overachieving kids living at home for 4 years. (S.M.)

World University and School would like to build the possibilities of innumerable, scientific studies of students' learning, (and professors' teaching) and particularly their enjoyment of learning, by great Universities' researchers for example, from the beginning, and in all languages, in exchange for free bachelor, Ph.D. law and M.D. degrees ... and probably in WikiData ... so that best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare WUaS improves and develops with the web. What a trove of developing and emergent data this could be!
