Otus the Mobile Learning Tool for 1:1 iPad Classrooms

If you are in a one-to-one iPad classroom Otus is a new app worth checking out.  It combines some of the best classroom and behavior management features found in other apps – assessment, polling, split screen, web browser – into one place.  Created by two middle school educators in Illinois, this app was designed to solve the problems they faced as teachers in one-to-one iPad classrooms.  Users just need to have a Google login to access all features, including a Bookshelf that allows students and teachers to organize resources.
