Piazza is an extremely effective and efficient means to help students with tough course material.  I have been using it only for this semester, but I am certain to use it in all of my future classes.  Features that I believe are invaluable: (1) Ability to write equations with pure TeX constructs.  I teach thermodynamics where everything is in complex equations and no way can I deal with equation editors :-) (2) E-mail notification of questions that have been posted, both to the instructor and students.  I get e-mails immediately and know that there is a question to be answered. (3) Follow-up capability is great. (4) Ability for students to respond. Survey of students has been very positive as well. Overall very nice product and I've been most pleased with it.

I have very much appreciated Piazza this semester in my parallel scientific computing class. This is a smaller class (41 students in the final tally), but even so, the students have often been good about answering each other's questions before I get to them. I plan to use the system again next semester when I teach the introductory scientific computing class.

Piazza has really changed the way discussion works in the class; there are *many* more questions being asked which can only be a good thing. Piazza makes it easy for us to answer them promptly while only answering once. I love the "someone else is editing this answer right now" feature, which has saved me hours of time I would have wasted answering questions at the same time as my co-instructor.

We really enjoyed using Piazza for our course this year. It is simple and fulfills its purpose without the feature-overload other eLearning platforms come with. I especially liked the "instructor thinks that this is a good question/answer" feature, because it encourages students to contribute to class discussions.
