About the eStout Program

The eStout Program is the digital learning environment at UW-Stout which offers students a variety of opportunities to be successful in achieving their academic goals. The program ensures that students and faculty have a standard set of tools - both hardware and software - that meet a majority of their wireless computing needs, thus producing a wireless laptop campus environment. The digital culture at UW-Stout is emerging as a dynamic agent for changing ways we learn. The eStout Program is included in the undergraduate student tuition so that UW-Stout students are provided with the tools that they will need to be technology literate in this environment.

The eStout Program is more than just a laptop computer! Students receive a laptop computer, backpack and a variety of cords/accessories as well as software, wireless and wired connectivity on campus, a course management systems, service and support, training, network storage, e-mail, and multimedia classrooms. 

Students may want to purchase some optional accessories to compliment their UW-Stout laptop. Suggestions include an external hard drive, and/or a printer, although printing is available across campus at a minimal cost. All accessories should connect to the laptop via USB.
