Starting fall Top Hat logo term 2018, Top Hat is OSU's centrally supported student response system. Top Hat is a web-based service for classroom polling and attendance that supports a variety of teaching and learning modalities. Students use a personal device (phone, tablet or laptop) to respond to questions. Top Hat integrates with Canvas so that faculty can upload polling results to the grade book. This student engagement platform can be used inside and outside of the classroom as well. Outside of the classroom professors can use the Interactive text platform to customize or create content for their courses.
Transition support for Faculty:
  • Top Hat staff can transfer instructors' Turning questions / PowerPoint slides into the new format
    • On-site support during the first week of the term
    • Train the trainer sessions for OSU staff and faculty who lead/support teams of instructors
    • The OSU classroom response team will offer pedagogical strategies for instructors who have concerns about students using personal devices in class.
