What is Top Hat?
Top Hat is a classroom engagement system that has been integrated with K-State’s Canvas. Many instructors are using the platform in their classrooms this spring through the use of quick questions and discussions to increase student participation and engagement and receive real-time feedback. The questions and attendance scores can automatically be tracked and synced into Canvas.
K-State has signed an agreement with Top Hat to provide a lower fee structure for students, who can purchase a $24 semester subscription with access to all courses using Top Hat within the semester.
