Top Hat

Top Hat is a web- and mobile-based classroom response system that engages students and provides professors with the real-time feedback on student understanding.

Top Hat lets instructors conduct polls, quizzes and interactive demonstrations in class. Students can participate in class using any device they own, such as their cell phone, smartphone, ipad or laptop.

With this technology, students can ask questions during lecture without interrupting the teacher and receive instant feedback. Additionally, because answers are saved, students may monitor their own progress, study their past work, and observe their grades, updated in real-time.

Currently used by over 200,000 students at over 300 universities, Top Hat makes the in-class experience more connected and interactive.
