Top Hat Monocle Announces Distribution Partnership With Pearson

TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Top Hat Monocle, a provider of technology-based classroom and homework innovations, today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Pearson, the world's leading learning company. The two companies will work together on a number of initiatives benefitting higher education, beginning with a discounted, packaged subscription to Top Hat Monocle's classroom response system, offered as an option with purchases of Pearson college textbooks and education products.

In addition to the packaged subscription, Top Hat Monocle has begun the process of integrating Pearson content into the Top Hat Monocle platform; specifically, the company will provide clicker questions, polling and other textbook-specific content for individual Pearson titles, giving instructors pre-built course materials ready for use in the classroom.

"Many college and university instructors have told us they want a closer connection between Top Hat Monocle and the Pearson materials they work from," said Mike Silagadze, co-founder and chief executive officer of Top Hat Monocle. "This partnership will allow our two companies to deepen that connection. Soon, many more professors, academic departments, and entire institutions will be able to take greater advantage of the combined teaching capabilities of Pearson and Top Hat Monocle."

Top Hat Monocle is a leader in Web-based solutions that leverage students' mobile devices to improve learning inside and outside the classroom. Compatible with all mobile and Web-enabled devices, students can respond in real time to questions and polls posed by instructors, run interactive demonstrations, ask questions, download course notes and submit homework, among other capabilities.

"Top Hat Monocle's technology platform is easy to use, easy to deploy and very versatile. As a company that has always pushed the boundaries of teaching and learning, we're excited to introduce this groundbreaking interactive technology to all of Pearson's higher education customers," said Chris Shenk, Senior Vice President of Pearson Learning Solutions.

Top Hat Monocle's discounted subscription will initially be available to North American Pearson customers, effective immediately. Integration of Pearson content in Top Hat Monocle's platform is expected to begin with the Fall 2013 school year, focusing on select high-demand titles.
