As a student engagement and interactive teaching platform, Top Hat’s software helps college professors activate classrooms. In a world of digital distractions, countless academic studies have reinforced the reality that students better understand the day’s lesson if they’re asked to engage with peers, interact with complex material and participate in class. By requiring students to use their personal devices to answer quizzes, reply to polls, and tackle difficult simulations, Top Hat transforms the passive lecture hall into an engaging learning environment. As an advocate for traditional, on-campus education, Top Hat not only modernizes established teaching methods but also facilitates new approaches including the ‘flipped classroom,’ ‘group learning,’ and other creative solutions. Top Hat is headquartered in Toronto, Canada, hosts 120 full-time employees, and has been operating since its 2009 launch behind $22M in venture funding.Something looks off?
