Students, at times, you will need to add an audio recording to your assignment in Otus. You can add audio recordings in a few different ways. We show you how below.

Where to Click:

Click "Choose File" under Student Attachments.

Click the paper clip next to Choose a file or drag it here.

Click + Add Item in the corner, add the details, then click the Upload to Portfolio button.

Make sure you are in "My Bookshelf". Then, click the + button and click Resource.

Are you using an iPad?

  • iPads do not support recording audio directly into Otus. You can upload an audio file, but you won't be able to record directly into Otus.

Step 1️⃣ When you see the box of choices, select the voice recording icon.

Step 2️⃣ Choose how you want to add your voice recording.

  • If you want to add an audio recording that is already on your device, select Browse.

  • If you want to record a live audio recording with your device, select Record Audio. The audio recording can be up to 5 minutes long.

Step 3️⃣

Select the microphone icon in the middle of the recording box.

Step 4️⃣

Select the record button in the lower-left corner.

Step 5️⃣

When you are done recording, select the stop button in the lower-left corner.

Step 6️⃣

Add a name to your voice recording and select Save.
