Stud.IP gives a quick and simple access to the world of e-learning. Every facility can provide schedules, folders for file uploads, discussion boards, participant lists, news tickers and lots more for all its courses. The aim of Stud.IP is not to replace events but to provide multimedia-based support for any kind of event. The developers of Stud.IP made an effort of creating an easy to use and intuitive system. Even inexperienced users can expect a quick feeling of success.

On one hand this smoothly increases the users media competence based on motivation by "ability". Current studies show that during the use of new media the own ability is a crucial factor. Therefore the system is built to be self-explanatory and can "learnt by doing". There is no need for further technical knowledge like installing browser plug-ins or using a special browser on the users side.

On the other hand the identification with the own university, the own course and field of studies and educational facility is increased. The studies and contacts to fellow students and lecturers now also take place between the usual meetings and events. So in this context 'identification' does not mean external management concepts like 'corporate identiy' but rather active participation in a 'social network of learning'. Therefore Stud.IP incorporates a lot of community elements that lead to the fact that people enjoy using the system - even besides the lectures.

By the way Stud.IP can be easily used together with ILIAS. The two systems are connected through a Stud.IP synchronization module. This module synchronizes the user account information and connect ILIAS learning modules to Stud.IP courses. This allows the creation and integration of learning modules of various popular standards like SCORM, LOM, AICC and QTI.

Interfaces are an important part of Stud.IP. Not only does it provide multiple export filters like HTML, RTF, PDF and XML, it also allows the import of data from the SOS and POS Modules of the academic information system HIS. The development of a connection module to HIS-LSF has already started and there are plans for a generic plug-in interface. Stud.IP already supports a direct connection to libraries providing instant access to library search functionalities. There are various add-ons available, for example for online test and surveys over a virtual exam system.

This version not only provides extended groupware functionalities, it comes with a time registration feature and a project management- and controlling module.
