Anyone with access to a student's plan is able to update the student's status for each item on the plan. Included in the plan update is the ability to attach a file to that status so that others who view an item's historical updates will be able to access that file. Teachers and administrators can add a variety of file types through file upload; take pictures, record videos, or record audio directly in Otus; add links to a website or resource; link a YouTube video; or add a resource from Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.
