Top Hat announces updated tools available for fall semester

Top Hat is a student engagement system that allows instructors to ask questions, take polls, give quizzes, and receive feedback from students during class. Top Hat has been integrated with Canvas so that instructors can sync grading and class roster information between the two systems

Top Hat has recently updated their tools, combining Top Hat Classroom, Assignment, and Test into a single product – Top Hat Test. With Top Hat Test, instructors can administer tests and quizzes utilizing a students’ own mobile device. To learn more about the Top Hat update, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5wgg3QbiBY.

Instructors who previously used both Top Hat Classroom and Top Hat Test in their courses will have the same functionality as before, plus new enhanced assessment features.

If you only used Top Hat Classroom, Top Hat Test will now be included.

K-State has negotiated rates with Top Hat. The current rates can be found at https://www.k-state.edu/its/software/software-licenses/.
