e-platform for the Faculty of Humanities




CommSy stands for “Community System.” It is a web-based system that supports networked project work. CommSy is the section you see after logging in to AGORA. It consists of the workspace overview, project and community workspaces, and all other functions available there.

CommSy is open source software (GPL) that is available for public use. The latest version (CommSy9) has been running on the AGORA platform since September 2017. Universität Hamburg used its predecessor, CommSy8, between 2013 and 2017.
