Top Hat launches new communication tool to help students, professors adapt to virtual education

Toronto-based EdTech startup Top Hat has launched Slate, a new free communication tool that allows students and educators at high education institutions with digital spaces to easily communicate and collaborate. The tool is aimed to be a resource for higher educational institutions forced to move courses online as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Top Hat conducted a survey in May that found approximately eight out of 10 higher education students said their online courses lacked the engagement of in-person classes. The following month, Top Hat acquired the Canadian domestic higher education textbook businesses of Nelson Education, one of the country’s largest education publishers. In addition to the acquisition of a massive education publisher, Slate appears to be another push from Top Hat to adapt to the rapidly changing education landscape.
