e-platform for the Faculty of Humanities



First Steps

This tutorial contains the most important instructions for using the CommSy platform. To access the platform, enter your uni username and password. Once you have logged into the system, you can request to join any workspace (e.g., a seminar workspace hosted by your lecturer). You can join any number of workspaces with your username or open your own workspace. The following chapters explain the main steps in this process for new CommSy users.

Tip: If you are not a UHH member and do not have a UHH user ID, you can still use AGORA if you are invited by the moderators of a project room to create an AGORA ID. In this case, please contact your lecturer. After you have received an invitation email, please follow the link and enter your data in the form that appears and accept the user agreements. Then you are successfully logged into AGORA and can search for and enter the room you want in the "List of all rooms" that you find at the top of the screen
