The Teaching and Learning with Technology unit of IT provides support for the Top Hat student response system, a mobile application that can be accessed by students on a personal device. Note TLT no longer supports the Turning Technologies clickers.

Top Hat is a student response system and comprehensive teaching platform that instructors can use to engage students both within and outside of the classroom with interactive slides, graded questions, customized content, videos, discussions, and polls. Students use smartphones, tablets, laptops, ordinary cell phones to participate in Top Hat activities. One Top Hat subscription provides student access to polling, attendance, secure test, and engaging assignments within the Top Hat software. The 2019-2020 cost for a subscription is $24/semester or $41/year. Faculty may also choose to use some of the open educational resources for free or low cost to the students. The Top Hat subscription codes should be purchased through the IC Bookstore.
