Strategy and Tactic

Philipp and Julian Autenrieth: "The best tactic and strategy decide the outcome, while the boat and the conditions are more or less the same for everyone.  Whoever can make the best out of these conditions, wins."


LEARNTEC Karlsruhe


The new LEARNTEC concept entailed increased integration of the trade fair and convention, and the trade fair offered an opportunity for directly observing how the knowledge gained in the convention was translated into concrete solutions, approaches and best practice examples.

Projekt Tactical Sailing is Finalist 2012

"Your project has been voted: Best Media Didactic. Out of more than 60 applicants, Tactical Sailing is winner of the European Award for Technology Supported Learning - eureleA 2012!" This good news came in on 31 January 2012. Sailors would say: "We got a gold medal!"

Prof. Henning gave a speech in honor of the Tactical Sailing Project: "This tactical and strategic game introduces a complete sequence of a sailing regattas. Beginners are guided gentlly through the first steps of sailing. A toolbox for coaches and integrated tutorial elements are also part of this excellent didactical approach as a "Serious Game," beside a very good technical solution with realistic modeling of wind and waves. The jury of eureleA 2012 voted that Tactical Sailing is therefore a "Best Practice Example" of game-based learning. The jury wishes that the same kind of compelling content with its complexity will arise in many more products. The jury awarded the prize of "eureleA 2012" in the category "Best Media Didactic" to the Tactical Sailing project.

The eureleA - European Award for Technology Supported Learning - is a contest to identify outstanding projects from the whole spectrum of technology supported learning and teaching. Since 2004 the winners of the eureleA have been made well known to the community as best practice examples.
