Mission:

World University and School's mission is free education, courses, and degrees in all known languages. World University and School (http://worlduniversityandschool.org - like Wikipedia with best CC OpenCourseWare) seeks also to facilitate all levels of teaching and learning through open, editable wikis. WUaS plans to accredit at the university and high school levels to offer online degrees and diplomas in all countries' main languages. WUaS’s wiki will involve open and editable teaching and learning but also non-editable courses prepared under a Creative Commons’ license. WUaS will facilitate the use of free CC courses as credits toward degrees. Due to the rapid spread of broadband worldwide, WUaS plans to make this accessible to underserved parts of the world and to poor people everywhere. WUaS will explore the possibility of using universal translators to extend the project automatically to any language with time.


Welcome to World University and School, a global, virtual, open, free-to-students, university and school, - with best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare, Creative Commons' licensed, degrees planned e.g. bachelor, Ph.D., law, M.D., & Music School, as well as I.B. diplomas - and which engages great universities', such as Yale, MIT, other 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., free, online, CC, content. WUaS is like Wikipedia with best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare, and is especially for the developing world, and for everyone. WUaS is planning to be in all 7,106+ languages and 242+ countries; Wikipedia, by way of comparison, is in 285 languages. Add your course or class here now, and take any course or class you want. World University and School will be in all languages and subjects, focusing, to begin with, on the countries that One Laptop Per Child is also engaging - e.g. Rwanda, Ethiopia, Colombia, Haiti, Mexico, Peru, USA (Birmingham, Alabama), Uruguay, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Cambodia, & Papua New Guinea +.
