Early on in my time teaching in a one-to-one iPad classroom, I connected with the folks at Otus. This passionate, energized company jumped right into the EdTech space to support educators implementing one-to-one technology and using a mix of devices in their classrooms.
The team at Otus, who are comprised primarily of long time K-12 teachers and administrators, believe that the key to leveraging the power of edtech lies within how well teachers can increase their efficiency and truly understand how technology is impacting student growth.
Otus Student Performance Platform: LMS, Assessment + Data Warehouse
The Otus Student Performance Platform is a hybrid of three EdTech toolsets: classroom/learning management systems, assessment management tools, and the data warehouse. Each set of tools is able to leverage the other which makes it possible for teachers to implement a variety of initiatives around differentiated instruction, data-driven instruction, and standards-based grading.
Otus is able to serve as a true teaching and learning platform that can be used by teachers, students, school leaders and families. Most importantly, Otus allows teachers to integrate many popular content resources they love to use all in one place. Students are able to stay organized because all of the third party tools that teachers use can be embedded within the platform. This includes Flipgrid, Newsela, and Kahoot – just to name a few. Otus serves as a “hub,” connecting data and providing the tools they need to do their jobs – instead of having to navigate a dozen or so different tabs open on your web browser.
Otus is a free tool that may be used by teachers, their students, and the families of students. If a school or district chooses to implement Otus system wide, they have the option for a subscription too.
