Mark Rounds's curator insight, November 14, 2013 10:38 AM

Otter is a new service that makes it easy to create simple webpages on which you can distribute information and collect assignments from students. Otter provides four widgets that you can add to your page. Those widgets are announcements, calendar events, hosted documents, and homework uploads. The widgets appear in that order on your page. Hosted documents can be uploaded from your computer or imported from Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox. Students can upload their assignment submissions through your Otter page. 


Otter doesn't allow you to change layouts or customize color schemes. It's just a no nonsense tool for quickly building pages through which you can distribute information and collect assignments. If a simple tool is what you need in order to develop a web presence for your course, give Otter a try.
