- This Task has been designed for use by Students, Faculty. For Students, Faculty
Pitt Information Technology and the University Center for Teaching and Learning are pleased to make Top Hat—a powerful class polling and student engagement tool—available to all University faculty and students at no cost.
Top Hat allows instructors to quickly take attendance and engage students throughout lectures by asking them to respond to questions and discussion prompts using their own device.
In addition, Top Hat enables faculty to:
- Create homework or assignments for students to complete outside of the classroom.
- Adopt and assign digital textbooks, including free open educational resources.
Direct support from Top Hat for faculty and students is available Monday – Friday 9am – 9pm EST. Faculty can also reach out to the University Center for Teaching and Learning for additional support or to schedule a consultation.
