Otus provides technology that empowers educators to make meaningful decisions by acting on student growth data.

About Us

Launched in 2013, Otus is an educational technology company dedicated to empowering educators to harness and act on educational data to improve learner outcomes.

Today, Otus is utilized by over 240 K-12 districts and schools and has delivered improved results for more than 1 million learners and their families.

Otus was created and built for teachers, by teachers. This unique characteristic is the foundation and driving force for all future development and every implementation of the platform.

Our Story

A group of teachers sat around a table at Elm Place Middle School in Chicago trying to work out why their student wasn’t succeeding, triangulating student data that lived in just as many platforms and gradebooks as there were people in the room.

One of those teachers was Chris Hull – and he knew there had to be a better way.

“Everyone at Otus is so willing to support and answer questions. Otus makes you feel like you’re it. You’re the focus.”
