Philipp Melzer analyses influence factors of personalised learning aiming to lay out design principles for personalised blended learning courses. Finding only weak support for a matching between learning styles and teaching methods,he defines learning tasks as the object of further investigations. Following the idea of a community of inquiry, the author develops the Personalised Learning Framework (PLF), modelling personalised learning as a process of selection as well as usage of learning tasks and learning tools by the community of inquiry. To evaluate the PLF further, a traditional university course is transformed to a personalised flipped classroom course. He shows how personalised learning can be supported in concrete learning interventions using specific learning methods and technologies.

For 10 years, Senator Bob Graham served on the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he had access to some of the nation´s most closely guarded secrets. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, Graham co-chaired a historic joint House-Senate inquiry into the intelligence community´s failures. From that investigation and his own personal fact-finding, Graham discovered disturbing evidence of terrorist activity and a web of complicity. As a result of his Senate work, Graham has become convinced that the attacks of September 11 could have been avoided, and that the Bush administration´s war on terror has failed to address the immediate danger posed by al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia. His book is a disturbing reminder that at the highest levels of national security, now more than ever, intelligence matters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Freed.
