Top Hat’s latest update introduces a brand-new assistive AI capability which empowers educators at UB to seamlessly customize their textbooks and their teaching methods to meet students' diverse learning needs effectively.
One of the features of Top Hat's update is its authoring tools. Instructors can easily create content, ranging from quizzes and assignments to multimedia presentations. The content made using these tools is immediately available to students, ensuring seamless integration into the learning experience.
Faculty at UB can leverage Top Hat to publish their own textbooks and materials tailored to their courses. This includes textbooks, lab manuals, study guides, and homework packs. By doing so, faculty members can earn royalties while providing students with course-specific materials.
The interactive nature of Top Hat ensures a student-centric focus, promoting a positive learning experience.
Additionally, faculty can contribute original content to the existing catalog, further enhancing their potential for royalties. It's a win-win, putting the focus on quality education and benefiting both educators and students.
Top Hat’s update also offers high-quality interactive textbooks that can be customized to align with specific course objectives. Instructors have the flexibility to adapt and modify the content to suit the pace of their teaching, the preferences of their students, and the evolving needs of their courses.
