What profs are saying about Top Hat

  • Syon Bhanot

    SYON BHANOT, Assistant Professor, Swarthmore College

    “Top Hat facilitates an interactive learning experience; it’s a tool for the next generation of students.”

  • CARRIE MILLER, Professor, Department of Biology and Chemistry, Azusa Pacific University

    “After switching to the interactive text I had real-time learning data on the number of students who’d done the readings and answered the questions as they progressed.”

  • 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.”

  • Heather Yanda

    HEATHER D. YANDA, Senior Lecturer, English, Alfred University

    “My whole experience with Top Hat has been fantastic—everything from our first chats, when I was learning what Top Hat was, to the training, and the people making sure things were occurring exactly the way they should. I end up hearing from someone about once a week, just to check in, and our conversations are fantastic. I am totally amazed by everything you have taught me, and what my students have gathered from their work already.”
