Active Learning with Top Hat

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Identify and implement best practices for using Top Hat for active learning in your courses
  • Create and present audience polling questions and class discussions
  • Add presentation slides to Top Hat
  • Import students, export grades, take attendance and manage groups
