  • EO Portal

All Engineering Outreach course sessions are delivered online through the EO Portal. Some, but not all, EO-delivered courses also have a BbLearn component.

  • VandalMail

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 Engineering Outreach may be sent only to your VandalMail account.  

  • VandalWeb

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 Engineering Outreach office by submitting a Student Update form.

  • BbLearn

BbLearn is the university's online course management system. Some instructors use BbLearn to post course materials and grades, as well as provide access to online discussions. Many EO-delivered courses do not have a BbLearn component. To see if your course instructor uses BbLearn 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.
You will periodically receive an email notification from ITS Account Management that your password will expire soon. If you have problems resetting your password, contact the ITS Help Desk, 208-885-HELP (4357) or, for assistance.
