TOP HAT MONOCLE: $1.1 million from Felicis Ventures to Toronto-based Top Hat Monocle, which announced an $8 million Series A round back in July 2012. COO Andrew D'Souza shared with GigaOM that the company accepted the offer not because it needed the money, but more for Felicis' "familiarity with education." (It has also invested in Inkling and Piazza.) Top Hat Monocle, which provides an online clicker service that can be used on smartphones, laptops and tablets, has now raised an estimated $10.6 million since its launch in 2010.
