If Otus seems to run extremely slow when you're building advanced assessments, you may want to check your school site's web filter/firewall (such as Securely) for potentially blocked URLs.  

Some URLs that MUST be allowed by your firewall include:

  1. *.cloudfront.net
  2. google-analytics.com
  3. my.otus.com
  4. learnosity.com
  5. https://cdn.fluence.net/
  6. http://help.otus.com
  7. pro.fontawesome.com
  8. https://intercom.com
