Student Response System (Top Hat)
The Teaching and Learning with Technology unit of IT provides support for the Top Hat student response system. We no longer support 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. It is recommended students purchase their Top Hat subscription code through the IC Bookstore and not the Top Hat website.
