Definitely got better

The way that the professor utilizes this app is definitely important. Since you can't receive notifications for due dates, your professor will hopefully be diligent about that.

Other than that, I think this is a really nice tool for classrooms. It's interactive, and has some cool question types (heat maps, clicking on images, matching, etc) although some of them are either difficult to use or don't work because my professors struggled. What's cool is you can go back and forward in the slides your professor has up so if you're a slow writer you can still get all the notes.

Overall, this is a really nice idea and needs a little work but I enjoyed having it in my class. Definitely could do with more organization in the content, it's a little overwhelming when all the slides are posted and you're trying to study.

TOPHAT system doesn’t work!!!!!!!

Why the heck am I paying so much for a stupid app? I had a question that I pretty chose the right answer but system would let me pick it. Told me that I had submitted my answer when in reality I haven’t. This is not me being careless and submit the answer. I logged out and when I logged in again the next day. Magically, the app just didn’t let me choose my right answer. Talked to professor but professor couldn’t confirm so she can’t give points. She can only see my last answer. What a bogus app. This company is a joke. I bet they give sponsor to professors to make students pay for more to study. Evil education scheme. Be warned!!!!! DO NOT TAKE PROFESSORS WHO USE TOP HAT!!!! It’s a waste of YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME!!! Blackboard is free and is much better!!!!!

A hip class structure with no functionality.

If you have a crippling case of FOMO then this is for you, however If you don’t then you will ultimately find this application/service pointless. Schools and universities without an integrated web platform may get some use out of this, but for those who already have one, this is just another worthless service to add on top of your schools online platform.

Almost no functionality on any mobile devices; the interface is less inspiring than MS DOS. File previews don’t exist. The instructors and TAs are either technologically illiterate (unlikely), or this program is about as user friendly as an etch-a-sketch.

This product is not ready to be something a student is required to pay for. It’s basically in the pre alpha development stage. I would be willing to pay another 28 dollars to not have to use this for the rest of the semester.

I wish I could have rated it one star, but Tophat isn’t even inspiring enough to warrant that much rage or disgust. Mediocre garbage.
