Blended learning project ends
Within the 4TU.AMI Blended Learning project, joined forces (TU/e, TUD, UT and WUR) came together to bring blended learning of mathematics to the next level. In this 4-year project, it became clear that collaboration is crucial. Successes and lessons learned are being shared among the math community.
