My favorite feature in Piazza is the poll. I use it like a clicker to get responses to questions during the lecture. I also like the statistics. I give participation points based on the number of times a student posts. Piazza makes that very easy.

I used Piazza in a large calculus class at UC Berkeley and both my students and I found it extremely useful and easy to use. I plan to keep using Piazza in all my future classes, large and small.

Piazza provides a convenient and user-friendly platform for holding online class discussions, answering questions, making announcements, and posting course materials. Piazza makes it incredibly easy for me to communicate with my students outside of the classroom.
