Otus, a leading provider of K-12 student growth data solutions, is proud to announce it has won the coveted Tech & Learning’s Best of Show Award at ISTELive 2023. The award celebrates products, and the businesses behind them, that are innovatively transforming education in schools around the globe.
Award nominees were judged on ease of use, value, uniqueness in the market, and proof that the product helps to simplify the lives of teachers and support student achievement. Judges were particularly impressed by the all-encompassing capabilities of the Otus platform, which were recognized as instrumental in fostering classroom and district innovation.
Designed by teachers for teachers, Otus provides an integrated platform that gathers, visualizes, and actionizes student data. The platform enables educators to monitor students’ academic growth, social-emotional development, and progress toward personalized learning goals. It efficiently combines grading, assessment, progress monitoring, and student data in one convenient, user-friendly location.
Judges acknowledged the comprehensive, yet intuitive, design of Otus that allows teachers to customize grading scales, use prebuilt assessments, track individual performance, and more. Its seamless integration of features helps educators navigate the entire learning process effectively, enabling them to set and track attainable milestones for students.
“We are humbled to receive this recognition,” said Chris Hull, co-founder and president of Otus. “We designed Otus with the vision of breaking down the silos in edtech and consolidating essential tools in one platform. Winning this award reaffirms that our product is genuinely making a difference in schools by supporting teachers, administrators, students, and their families.
