What is Blended Learning?
The Definition of Blended Learning: "Integrate online with traditional face-to-face class activities in a planned, pedagogically valuable manner.” by https://www.teachthought.com/learning/the-definition-of-blended-learning/
Back in Dec-18 there was a request via LinkedIn to give feedback about the latest draft version of the Blended-Learning Fibel. I did participate in the review back then and got a free final version today, to provide a book recension in the next 8 weeks. My 1st impression is pretty good, a simple but structured approach that is offering a lot of add-on material and a well filled methods toolbox. Some more material about the topic:

Besides the book I was checking the latest progress of the big three privately financed Space explorer companies - SpaceX (Elon Musk), Virgin Galactic (Richard Branson) and Blue Origin (Jeff Bezos). Really great, what these guys can accomplish with their teams without the deep involvement of the NASA. When you have a vision and the money, there is nearly no limit.
