Top Hat Student Engagement App
Come learn about Top Hat, CWU’s free student engagement app. Top Hat encourages student engagement by utilizing a student’s own mobile device and a free Top Hat Lecture App (with no extra clicker device for students to purchase and carry around). Top Hat allows you to automate attendance-taking and in-class polling, spark conversations, and get real-time feedback from students as they participate in-class on their mobile devices. The CWU Student Tech Fee Committee approved funding for a tiered-license of Top Hat with 2500 student licenses for 2018-19, so the tool is available to students at no cost!

Ally Accessibility Tool
Preview the new Ally accessibility tool that automatically generates alternate accessible formats for course documents uploaded into Canvas. Ally scans your course documents (Word, PPT, PDF, images) and creates accessible versions in alternate formats (eBraille, ePub, tagged PDF, HTML, audio recording, and screen-reader accessible files) to serve students with different learning needs. Ally also provides step-by-step guides to help instructors make their original course documents more accessible. Ally will be piloted this Fall with a scaled roll-out planned throughout the academic year.
