Top Hat is a student engagement platform that professors use inside and outside of the classroom. Top Hat provides a lecture tool that tracks attendance, asks questions, features interactive slides, and manages classroom discussions. Outside of the classroom, the platform features an InteractiveText platform where professors can adopt, customize, or create content for their courses.

Using Top Hat, professors can engage their studens using multiple question types, Discussions, and Tournaments with real-time feedback and Gradebook integration with Canvas, the University of Denver’s Learning Management System.


You can use Top Hat to:

  • Run live polls and quizzes to gauge understanding and track participation
