The Learning & Innovative Technologies 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.

Top Hat is a student response system and comprehensive teaching platform that instructors can use to engage students both in and outside of the classroom with interactive slides, graded questions, customized content, videos, discussions, and polls. Students use smartphones, tablets, and laptops to participate in Top Hat activities. Faculty may also choose to use some of the open educational resources for free or low cost to the students available through the Top Hat platform as part of the subscription. One Top Hat subscription provides student access to polling, attendance, and engaging assignments within the Top Hat software. The 2022-2023 cost for a subscription is $34/semester or $57/year and is available for purchase through Akademos, paid by the student.
