Student Submission Options

Once students have created their accounts and enrolled in your Top Hat course they will be able to engage with you in the classroom, responding to questions, submitting their attendance, etc., using one of three submission options.

  1. Web Browser (Laptop/Desktop)
    Students can participate using a web browser (on a laptop computer for example) by logging in at www.tophat.com. Students will be automatically prompted to input the projected attendance code when you take attendance, can view uploaded slide presentations as you navigate through them, and when you ask Top Hat questions or discussions they will open automatically on the students’ screens for them to submit their responses.  
  1. Top Hat Mobile App (Android/IOS)
    Students can download our native Android or iOS apps by searching for 'Top Hat' in each respective app store. Upon logging in students will be automatically prompted to input the projected attendance code when you take attendance, can view uploaded slide presentations as you navigate through them, and when you ask Top Hat questions or discussions they will open automatically on the students’ screens for them to submit their responses. If students are having issues connecting to the internet, they can still submit answers by using Offline Mode! Additional information on this feature are available here: Student: Offline Mode
  1. SMS/Text Message
    Students can participate in class using an older generation phone, or when the WiFi signal is weak, by sending a SMS/text message to your school’s SMS response phone number. Each time you activate a question, discussion, attendance session, etc., it is assigned a unique 4-digit SMS code that is displayed on your projected screen. Students simply submit that SMS code (for attendance), or that SMS code in combination with their question or discussion submission to your school’s SMS response phone number as projected on your screen and likely saved as a contact in your students’ phones. For additional information on this submission option please see here: Student: SMS/Text Message Submissions
