Great teaching tool

I am am instructor and I’ve used Top Hat in my classes for the past two years. It has radically changed the teaching experience for me and the learning experience for my students. It makes the class interactive and it motivates students to engage with the material. I get lots of positive feedback about it on student evaluations each semester. Highly recommend it to students and professors.

Unfortunately they removed the feature where you received notifications when new questions were posted. I wish this feature would be re-added, but otherwise the app usually works well.

Not worth paying for

I have to use this app for my class right many technical problems. Right now, PDFs from my prof aren’t appearing in the mobile app. The grading function is inaccurate/misleading for students. Also, if during class you have to toggle between lecture material and some other area of the app, the app won’t return you to the lecture slide you last flipped to—it sends you back to the beginning of the lecture slides, and you have to quickly scroll through and try to find the last slide you were on. In a lecture with 20+ slides, flipping through is really frustrating and time-consuming. The lecture slideshow on the mobile app doesn’t allow you to download the lecture. Can’t believe I had to pay for this. The app can’t do such basic, intuitive things. It’s not made to function in a university setting. Never again.
