What is Top Hat at Vanderbilt?
Top Hat is Vanderbilt’s classroom response system, available for free to all faculty, staff, and students. Using Top Hat, instructors can pose polling questions and ask all their students to respond using their phones or laptops. Top Hat quickly collects and visualizes student responses, giving instructors a snapshot of student learning they can use to inform class discussion.
The Center for Teaching serves as the administrative home for Top Hat at Vanderbilt, and coordinates training and support. Look for opportunities to learn more about Top Hat under the Training Sessions menu. You can also contact CFT Educational Technologist Rhett McDaniel to learn more.
