Greg Domski

Greg Domski, Assistant Professor, Augustana College

“The Top Hat platform allowed us to motivate students to read prior to coming to class in a way that is not possible with traditional, non-interactive textbooks. Most impressively, the average score on final exams increased from the 49th percentile to the 64th percentile; this was the highest score I’ve seen in my time teaching organic chemistry.”

Chris Bone

Christopher Bone, Assistant Professor, University of Oregon

“Working with Top Hat could really be the future of publishing. The process is much more flexible, there’s very little red tape, and as an author, I feel like my contributions are respected. Authoring with Top Hat doesn’t feel like being a small part in the publishing game, it’s been a relationship based on mutual respect, which goes a long way.”
