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
1. November 2020

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 carries the name of the central square in ancient Greek cities. The integrated e-learning and e-science-platform have a strong focus on the special needs of Humanities computing and collaboration.

Digital Kickstart for Students

After the start of the semester and the start of the courses, it is always advisable to take a closer look at the digital world of the university in order to promote communication and exchange in the long term.

The "Digital Kickstart for Students" is now available in an updated version! The manual offers (first-semester) students an introduction to the most common tools and platforms at our university. Feel free to pass the document on to your students as a handout.

Students can find more information about the "Digital Kickstart" on our eLearning office website.
