Our purpose and our reach, your opportunity.
Top Hat is revolutionizing the world of higher education. We are the leading teaching platform that professors use to create an active learning environment. Using Top Hat, professors can transform students' smart phones and laptops into tools of engagement, leading to increased attendance, higher grades, and a more effective lecture experience. More recently, Top Hat launched its own interactive textbook authoring platform and marketplace you can read about the financing round we just raised to drive this initiative over at Bloomberg. We aim to be the premier way for professors to interact with students both in and out of the classroom.
Top Hat is used and adored by over 750 universities and over 2 million students worldwide.
