“I am a bit of a technophobe, but I find Top Hat easy to use and the tech support to be wonderful. I monitor students’ progress, then I focus my time in the classroom on content that students are struggling with. Since I have been using Top Hat, I have seen dramatic improvement in student understanding of content, application of content, scores on exams, and transfer of learning to the next semester.”
