Technology in the Classroom

Law school classrooms have a variety of hardware installed to facilitate your teaching. If you have questions about that technology, please contact the Moritz Help Desk at moritzhelp@osu.edu.

Top Hat is a student engagement platform professors can use to ask students a variety of question types including Multiple Choice, Word Answer, Numeric Answer, Sorting Problems, Matching Problems, and Click on Target. Students can participate using their mobile devices including smart phones, tablets, and laptops.

Moritz IT can assist you with questions you have regarding technology in the classroom. One resource we have that you might consider: TurningPoint. Turning point is a polling software that includes "clickers" for students to participate in real-time multiple choice questions during class.

The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) also offers an online polling tool: InstaPoll. Simply go to the CALI InstaPoll site, direct your students to the site, pose your multiple-choice question, and watch the answers roll in live in class.

For help with these technologies, technology embedded in the classrooms, or to explore other ways to include technology in the classroom (e.g., creating video tutorials, taping lectures), contact Moritz IT at moritzhelp@osu.edu or 614-297-6467 to reach Laju Mansukhani.
