e-platform for the Faculty of Humanities



Welcome to AGORA


With the help of personal workspaces you can individually supervise students and, for example, organize the collection of seminar and study materials. You can find more information by following the tutorial in our help section.

We currently offer the teaching staff of our faculty these office hours digitally via Zoom:

  •     Tuesdays from 11:30h to 12:30h
  •     Thursdays from 13:30h to 14:30h

Back up processes are performed on a daily basis between 5:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. in the RRZ. During this period, the platform's availability may be limited. In addition, technical maintenance is performed monthly. The RRZ informes accordingly on its website and furthermore points to the fact that, in case of urgent security matters, maintenance can be anounced and performed beyond this schedule.


AGORA took its name from the central square in ancient Greek cities. The integrated e-learning and e-science-platform has a strong focus on the special needs of Humanities computing and collaboration.

Tip of the month

June 2021

Find content faster: Search in project spaces

To quickly find the documents or entries you are looking for within project rooms, you can use the room's own search function. The corresponding field is located in the upper right corner of every project room and can be reached from every section.

Please note: If you enter a search term on the home page of the project room, results from the entire room will be displayed ("Search in room"). If you use the search within a rubric (such as materials or discussions), only hits from the current rubric will be displayed. 

For more information, see this entry in our FAQs.
