There are two key components within O-Space
E-Portfolios @ Otis E-Portfolios are platforms for students, teachers, alumni, and departments to showcase their work and ideas. They are archives of learning, discovery, progress, achievement and reflection. It is a platform to present dynamic content. Think of it as a BOOK or a WEBSITE - a one way website where you present and find information. People like the e-portfolio a lot because you have more options for color, font sizes, and embedded images and videos.
Everyone in the Otis Community has access to the software and many people have more than one portfolio for different purposes.
The Learning ePortfolio
Beginning in Fall 2009, Otis students began keeping Learning ePortfolios. This is a unique opportunity to actively connect content from different classes and reflect on what is being learned. This particular type of e-portfolio will be kept over all four year and become the the basis for a Senior Capstone course.

Course Management System (CMS)
The Course Management System (CMS) or "My Course" is the place where the interaction between you and your students occurs. There's the Discussion Board, the Submission feature, Gradebooks, Attendance, etc. You can email from the CMS, share handouts and have private discussions.
