unnamedThe Blog feature in Otus is a great way for your students to practice writing.  With the blogging tool students can post, comment and share ideas in a safe, teacher-controlled environment. You can see all student blogs in one place and quickly reference the progress of each student’s writing.  Otus lets you tag student posts with Common Core and other standards to track evidence of learning and mastery.

You can control privacy and access privileges for your classes. You decide whether students can see one another’s blog posts. It is also up to you if students comment on one another’s blogs. There is the option to control if the blogs are private between you and the student too.  It’s a great option for helping students collaborate, share ideas, images and comments with students in other classes, schools or country.

Otus is available for iPad, Chromebook and any Web-Enabled Device. Learn more by visiting their website!
