Most educators rely on their institution’s learning management system to manage courses and grades. But there’s so much more that education technology can do to enhance the teaching and learning experience—and that’s where Top Hat comes in. Top Hat is designed for instructors to use in their courses to engage students with compelling in-class activities, customizable content, and even authoring tools. And, if you’re part of a school-wide adoption, Top Hat can integrate with the LMS your institution uses so that you get the best of both technologies.

This chart highlights the main differences between an LMS and Top Hat’s student engagement platform.
