The interaction among the users is the essence of Stud.IP. We would like to intentionally distance ourselves from learning systems in which every participant simply solves his problems stolidly and alone — we consider that to be an impoverishment of the course of studies.
Different features which promote interaction among the users have been integrated into Stud.IP.
The Homepage is surely the most interesting feature of the system. After registration each user is assigned an area which he or she can configure him-/herself within certain limits.
Other users in the system (and only they!) can then obtain information from this homepage.
There are many different possibilities for finding other users' homepages.
In general, the following applies: if the name of a person is indicated as a link (blue color), this refers to the homepage. That can be lecturers or participants in the participant overview of a course, the author of news or postings and many others.
Do not be afraid to click on names — you cannot, e.g., unintentionally send emails.
In this context you can search directly for names. You receive a set of hits whose names are linked as described above. You will find the icon for for conducting your search on the Header bar.

Also on the header bar you can see at any time whether someone other that yourself is currently in the system, i.e. as soon as the “Who is online” icon turns red. Click on it and you receive a list of these people — naturally with links to their homepages.
Attach:gelb.gif Δ Even as you yourself enjoy other users’ pictures, others are glad when you yourself do not “politely remain in the background.” Reveal a bit of yourself to the other users, and upload a picture. You will find a instructions on how to do so here!
