Turn your hard-copy course materials into an impressive interactive learning experience. Embed videos within your content to easily access additional learning tools, share supplemental web resources for student use, and customize materials where you need them and when you can.
Access and customize our high-quality course content. Our robust and interactive online database includes thousands of illustrations, hundreds of ready-to-use labs and textbooks.
Create auto-graded, interactive assignments tailored to your course to reinforce and assess learning asynchronously. Seamlessly upload questions you’ve already created for use right away in your course. Personalize learning by customizing quiz, assignment settings and due dates for particular students.
Recreate the experience of your face-to-face class or lab by engaging students in live labs or lectures. Present slides, connect with students through video streaming and live chat, and ask questions to gauge attention and learning.
Give your students an in-class experience even after the lab or lecture ends. Recordings capture your presentation, pinpointing class discussions and participation as they occur. An interactive lab or lecture playback replicates the experience of a live class meeting.

Use 14 different question types—like multiple choice, click-on-target and numeric answers—to introduce new concepts, reinforce students’ understanding of topics and assess learning. Easily export grades and participation data to your LMS.
Your in-app chat window lets students raise their hands to ask questions, communicate with each other and engage with the material via text and emojis. Moderate chat threads by muting, replying to specific messages and more.
Securely administer quizzes, tests and exams on students’ computers. Set specific start and end times and verify identities online to ensure that the right students are taking your test. Monitor student activity and generate an easy-to-understand proctor report that flags irregular student behavior.
Get up-to-the-minute insights on how students are doing in your course. Easily identify and reach out to struggling students with actionable progress reports. Track student performance and sync grades directly from the Top Hat gradebook to your LMS.
Help students tackle the challenges of online learning with best-in-class tools that make your course flexible and accessible. Allow students to dial-in to lecture via phone, offer video replays of your class meetings and provide transcripts of lecture recordings.
