Top Hat’s in-class teaching platform brings active learning into the classroom to help faculty achieve their course goals. Top Hat is an end-to-end teaching solution where students are engaged in and out of the classroom through cutting-edge polling software, low-cost interactive content, flexible homework systems, and secure test-taking solutions. Across its suite of products, Top Hat offers discipline-specific assessment types to gauge understanding and deepen comprehension.
