iClicker
Top Hat
Engagement
iClicker offers asynchronous quizzes for students to respond to outside of class.
Top Hat lets educators engage their students wherever learning takes place. Add questions, polls, and discussions to readings, review materials, and other content that students can interact with in class or on their own time.
Learning
iClicker offers polling with only five question types.
Top Hat’s 14 question types encourage students to think of what they’ve learned and apply it in different ways.
Controlled
Quizing
iClicker’s low-stakes quizzing requires instructors to ask questions to students outside the platform. This makes it difficult for students to look at quiz results when they study.
With Top Hat, the questions you create are stored on our platform. They can be used to assess students in formative, low-stakes, and high-stakes settings, while you stay in control of custom due dates for your class and individual students. Better still, students can work through these tests on their own time, on their own devices.
Direct
Support
Some iClicker users have found it difficult to set up and use.
Top Hat’s best-in-class support staff guide faculty every step of the way, from creating your course to building mid-semester check-ins and assessments. One-to-one onboarding, instructional design expertise and 24/7 technical assistance ensure you’re ready to deliver transformative learning experiences.

Why educators and students love Top Hat

"Molecular biology is highly abstract and if students don’t get concepts early, it’s hard to catch up. Now, the classroom conversation is better and motivation is much higher because students remember the materials from the week prior."

Sue Ellen Dechenne-Peters
Assistant Professor of Biology at Georgia Southern University
(Top Hat Educator Story)

"[Top Hat is] better than a clicker and easier to access. [I like] the ability to watch class presentations and answer class questions simultaneously."
