Piazza has been working very well for us. Students are actively using it to ask questions, and it's also convenient for announcements.
The students like it and we get significant activity on it. We plan to use it for the Spring semester again.
I've really liked using Piazza this past semester. Thank you for providing such a useful tool. It's been a really effective way to respond to student concerns. We've gotten a lot of use out of it- primarily, as a venue for the students to ask questions about their homework and programming assignments (including the system environment needed for the programming assignments), and the occasional announcement.
Instructors can create a Piazza for their class with a single click.
Students and instructors are automatically enrolled with appropriate roles, based on the course roster.
When clicking on Piazza in Blackboard, users are automatically signed in to Piazza, so there's no need to remember a separate user name and password.
