At the 13th Tanner University Competition, students from the Technical Content Creation program at the Aalen University of Applied Sciences were in the lead: Christian Krause, Chris-Norman Roth, Christian Schmidt and Lucas Wolf delivered a work to the jury at the Lindau Island Hall completely convinced. Its task: to develop e-learning units for the Lufthansa subsidiary LTT.

The competition is organized every year by Tanner AG, a service provider for technical communication, together with other well-known companies. A total of 19 students from six different universities had taken up the challenge of LTT. The teams came from the University of Aalen, Merseburg University of Applied Sciences, the Technical University of Central Hesse, the University of Applied Sciences Munich, the University of Media Stuttgart and the University of Applied Sciences South Westphalia. Their task: to develop a uniform structure for the trainings as e-learning and to exemplify learning sequences. Special challenges this year were the issue of aircraft engines and the use of e-learning tools. The jury was impressed by the teams’ diverse approaches to this task and the high quality of all solutions. “Each team presented us with special highlights. The winning team, however, impressed with a package that was completely round, “said Eike Nowiszewski, head of LTT training development, in her laudatory speech. “The concept we presented was so detailed that we could go to the market tomorrow without much effort.”

The four Aaleners are very happy with the result. “We were convinced of our concept and are delighted that we were in the lead in the jury,” said the students. “With the Technical Content Creation program in Aalen, we do not need to be afraid of complex documentation tasks in the future.” The success of the Tanner competition has a long tradition: In recent years, the participating teams from Aalen have always been on the podium. They took five first and one second place. Professor Dr. Constance Richter, head of the degree program, believes she knows why: “At Aalen, we attach great importance to solid technical foundations. Our students are not only media professionals in the end, but also have a Bachelor of Engineering degree. “
