What administrators are
saying about Top Hat

  • David Hooker

    David Hooker, Innovation Lead, Office of Distance Education, Ohio State University

    “Top Hat’s development team responded to our feedback, which led to a product that is accessible on web and iOS interfaces. The work to make the product accessible (and protect our school from legal action as a result of adopting the tool) played a large part in our decision.”

  • Marco Martinez

    Marco Martinez, Technology Coordinator, Information Technology Services, Sacramento State

    “For faculty who were ambivalent about these types of tools, Top Hat made a big difference. Top Hat made teaching interesting again.”

“Top Hat makes my lectures more provocative, more dynamic and more effective, and that’s why I use it.”

— Patrice Dutil

Professor, Politics and Public Administration, Ryerson University
