The subscription fee is reasonable: $24 for one semester, $36 for one year, and $72 for lifetime. The subscription is not course specific, so if you have other courses that use Top Hat in the same semester you just need to purchase the subscription once. To purchase the subscription, you can either buy it directly online (click here) with a credit card, or you can purchase it at the UBC bookstore. The join code for this course is 280875.
