Glossary

Administrator
Users that have elevated permissions in one or more departments in order to ensure the operational reliability of the system.
Have full access to all courses and functions inside of their department(s) and to some system-wide functionalities, such as the creation of Uni2work accounts.
Applicant
Application
Apply for course
Students can apply for specific courses.
The student will additionally become a course participant, should the application be accepted (or should the student be allocated to the course).
Application template
Registration template(s)
If a course requires applications that allow for the submission of files, the course administrators are able to publish a set of files that may help future applicants in composing applications that meet the course administrator's expectations.
Applications required

If a course requires application, only applications of students will be registered instead of students directly enrolling in the course.
It is then up to the course administrators to rate and (if applicable) accept them.

Courses that participate in a central allocation also have the option of requiring applications.
In case of a central allocation, every course that participates in it will receive applications, regardless of whether this option is set or not. However, course settings regardings the application procedure (e.g. submissions of files, required filenames, ...) will be applied.

Central allocation
Since the available capacity in some sorts of courses (especially practicals and seminars) is limited and generally insufficient for the number of students that want/need to participate in this sort of course in a specific semester, the capacity is distributed among all participants of an allocation.
Cloning
Some objects in Uni2work (courses, exercise sheets, ...) can be cloned.
This means that all reasonable settings will be taken from the cloned object and the form to create a new objects of this type will be pre-filled with these settings.
Corrector
Proportion
State
Users that are authorised by a course administrator to collaborate in the correction of single exercise sheets or exams.
A correction proportion can be set when assigning a corrector to an exercise sheet. These proportions will then be followed as closely as possible during the next automated distribution of corrections.
For exercise sheets, there is the option to assign correctors in principle, but then mark them as missing or excused.
In both cases, these correctors will not be assigned to any submissions. In case of a missing corrector, those missed submissions will then be registered as deficit.
Course administrators
Users that help in organising a course and are therefore granted full control (by the user that created the course) over every aspect of the course.
Course evaluation
This permission is granted by an administrator to single users for a specific department.
Users with this permission are allowed to view the list of participants of every course of the department, e.g. to conduct surveys regarding courses.
Course message
Tutorial message
Course administrators and tutors are able to send e-mails to their course/tutorial participants via Uni2work.
Course news
Course administrators are able to publish news and announcements regarding their course directly on the course overview page.
Course occurrences
Course administrators are able to publish events regarding their course (lectures, exercise discussion, exam review, ...) directly on the course overview page.
Course participant
Enrol for course
Deregister from course
Students that explicitely associate themselves with a course (or are allocated to it).
Have access to material and parts of a course (register for tutorials, exams, ...).
CSV format
CSV file
CSV import
CSV export
Widespread format for semi-structured data exchange between separate systems.
Can be processed by most established spreadsheet programs.
Deficit
Once the correctors have been assigned to the submissions of an exercise sheet, there is no guarantee that every corrector is assigned to corrections exactly according to their proportion.
In case of a deviation, the discrepancy between a corrector's number of assigned submissions and their ideal number of submissions (according to their proportion) is called the corrector's deficit.
It will be attempted to compensate for this deficit in the next assignment of corrections.
Department
The system is divided into departments in most aspects.
Every course has an associated department, and most user permissions are granted department-wise.
Exam office

Models the parts of a university that need access to exam results to ensure that the modalities of study are satisfied and exam achievements are accredited correctly.

Part of an Exam Office is a permission that is granted by an administrator to single users for a specific department.
Users with this permission then have access to all exam achievements (in Uni2work) provided for the relevant department.

Exam result
Course administrators (and assigned correctors) are able to save the results of an exam directly in Uni2work.
This serves as the purpose to give feedback to the students as well as the purpose to let Exam Offices with requisite permissions synchronise exam results in Uni2work with exam results in their own management systems.
Exams
Quasi-arbitrary forms of exams (project reviews, oral exams, written exams, ...) can be modelled in Uni2work.
Exercise sheet
Course administrators are able to distribute exercise sheets of their courses to the participants directly using Uni2work.
In general, course participants then have permission to upload their solutions to the exercise sheet in Uni2work (or in an external system, e.g. on paper). Correctors, feedback and possible bonus points can then be managed using Uni2work.
For every user, the system marks a certain amount of courses as favourites.
These marked courses are generally shown on a bar at the left border of the browser window.
Group submission
Arbitrary groups
Registered groups
There is an option to allow course participants to submit solutions for single exercise sheets in groups.
These groups are either selected per submission by the participants (arbitrary groups), or by a course administrator (registered groups).
Invitations
On many places in Uni2work, there is the option to include other users in a process (e.g. assign as course administrator, corrector, co-submittors, ...). In those cases, the internal ident of a user (e.g. their campus account) is generally unknown.
This is why in some of those places, you can send an invitation to an arbitrary email address. If a recipient accepts such an invitation (the correct user ident will be identified using the recipient's login), the user will be included without further action of the sender.
Lecturer
Users that are granted department-wide permission by an administrator to create and manage new courses.
Material
Course administrators are able to distribute additional course material (e.g. slides or program examples) to the participants directly using Uni2work.
Personal pseudonym
If it is intended to submit solutions for an exercise sheet via an external system (e.g. on paper), then the course participants can generate a pseudonym on the page of an exercise sheet.
An external submission that carries this pseudonym can then enable correctors to create submissions in Uni2work that correspond with the external submission.
This way, feedback and bonus points can be managed directly in Uni2work, even though the actual submissions are done externally.
