"Otus is a terrific management tool for teachers in one-to-one classrooms who want an easy way to keep track of student work, provide opportunities for collaboration, and so much more. I’ve had the opportunity to share Otus with my readers and webinar attendees and want to highlight one of the fantastic aspects of this powerful app – Otus is completely FREE for students and teachers.
With Otus teachers can keep track of participation, send notes to students, and take attendance. They can also recognize student behavior by awarding points and group students. The bookshelf feature lets teachers organize folders of resources to share with students – this can be done for whole class, individual, or create groups of students. Otus gives teachers the power to create, assign, and grade assessments. It is also simple to share these assessments with colleagues who may wish to use the same one or modify it for their students."

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.
“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
