The ICON Direct program is happy to announce a new lower price for Top Hat Classroom Pro licenses. A license will cost $10 per student per semester for the 2024–25 academic year—a savings of $23 compared to the retail price of $33. One license covers multiple classes in one semester.

This lower price is possible due to increased use by University of Iowa instructors. The summer 2024 price will remain $15.

Top Hat allows students to enter responses via their cell phones, laptops, or tablets through an app or web browser. It can make your classes more interactive, facilitate class discussions, guide lectures, encourage peer instruction, allow for immediate student feedback, and allow for polling.

Watch a video, where a University of Iowa professor discusses Top Hat and how it can be successfully utilized for classes.

To use Top Hat in your fall 2024 courses, Top Hat Classroom Pro should be ordered through the ICON Direct Order Tool by Monday, July 29, 2024.

Keep an eye on OTLT events for future Top Hat training opportunities or contact us to request a departmental training session to learn more about how Top Hat may fit into your classes.
