I can see where other's should be used when it means each other's, but suppose I am talking to a lot of other people and listening to the others' stories. (Should we write others' then?)

Yes.

How about this quote from the President of Pacific University: At Pacific, you are encouraged to step out into the community and learn from other’s experiences while applying what you hear, see and do in the classroom.

It's wrong.
