Top Hat

Top Hat is the institutional in-class polling tool, and is a great way to make your lectures and seminars much more engaging for students, allowing each individual to use their voice and you to identify areas where additional support might be required.


Top Hat is accessible through a web-browser or mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

Please note that the Top Hat app for iPhone is not currently supported for Professor use, and functionality in unsupported browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer) is limited. Guidance for LUBS staff is available on the E&I sharepoint pages.
