The bookshelf gives you a place directly in Otus to view resources that your teachers have shared with you. You also can save your own resources to your own bookshelf so you can have quick and easy access to them. Here's everything you can do with your bookshelf:

  • View resources that your teacher shares with you

  • Add your own resources - study guides, online study resources, helpful documents

  • Organize your resources into folders

  • Share your resources with your teachers
