Extension Data Portal

The new Extension Data Portal is now live and replaces the Extension module in Vita. This system provides a streamlined data entry process and enhanced reporting functionality. Online training for the system will be available as of Jan. 10 through Carmen Canvas (carmen.osu.edu), and training is required before access to the system is granted. In addition, you will need to complete your Institutional Data Policy (IDP) training prior to accessing the new system. Visit go.osu.edu/IDP-enroll to check whether you are up-to-date with your IDP training.

In addition to the online training, Learning and Organizational Development will offer monthly office hours the fourth Wednesday each month at 9 AM where you can have your questions answered or learn from your peers’ questions. Register for any month (February – October) using this link go.osu.edu/Engage-EDP-OfficeHours (registration required)
