Piazza is working very well and the students seem to like it.

Philip LoewenMathematics, UBC

Piazza is working well for me and my students in Real Analysis I (UBC MATH 320). Thanks for a fun and valuable educational tool.

Max ErlerComputer Science, UBC

I've found Piazza incredibly useful as an instructor. A few things that I think contribute most to its success are: 1) Easy to follow layout. Even things like color-coding help tremendously. 2) One student response and one instructor response. This makes it obvious where the real answer is, and simplifies the process. With other types of class discussion boards, students have to search through several posts before finding an answer that might be correct. With Piazza, it's obvious. 3) The ability to post anonymously. I know a lot of students would be intimidated if they had their names attached to their questions. Making the system anonymous allows those who might otherwise be intimidated the chance to ask their questions without fear of judgement.

I think Piazza is richly intuitive. The one characteristic of the system I had not fully appreciated from the start was how the design of Piazza is more like a wiki than like a discussion board ... so the student answer is a single evolving document rather than an ever-lengthening chain of points and counterpoints.
