All Engineering Outreach (EO) course sessions are delivered online through the EO Portal. Some, but not all, EO-delivered courses also have a Canvas component.
VandalMail is the University of Idaho's email system with an interface hosted by Microsoft's Outlook 365 application. You are required to use VandalMail. Official correspondence from instructors and various university offices including EO may be sent only to your VandalMail account.
VandalWeb is the University of Idaho's personal information system. You can register for courses, review your student account charges, review financial aid, view your grades, and update your personal contact information in VandalWeb. If you change your contact information, please also notify the EO office by submitting a Student Update form.
Canvas is the university's online course management system. Some instructors use Canvas to post course materials and grades, as well as provide access to online discussions. Many EO-delivered courses do not have a Canvas component. To see if your course instructor uses Canvas to supplement the EO Portal:
- Refer to the course syllabus.
- Visit the course website.
- Watch the first few sessions in the EO Portal.
- Email the professor directly.
