Top Hat

About Top Hat

Top Hat is a web-based tool instructors use to take student attendance and administer (in-class and out-of-class ) polls, quizzes, tournament games, discussion channels, file-sharing, and assignments. Instructors support student engagement by adding question-and-answer activities to lecture presentations or group activities.

Top Hat is used by connecting with an app on a mobile device, through a web browser, or by text/SMS. Students respond using their phones, tablets, or laptops. Top Hat collects and visualizes student responses, giving instructors a snapshot of student learning they can use to drive class discussions. The Top Hat company also offers other services such as interactive textbooks.
