I'm new to Piazza, but found it to be a great way for not only reducing workload (less email), but students get help faster, and what I like best of all --- students helping students!

Jakob ErikssonComputer Science, UIC

This is the first semester I used Piazza, and it has been great. I used to use a class mailing list, which worked well, but Piazza takes it one step further. I can't think of anything I dislike about Piazza, you've done a great job!

Piazza has figured out the right user interface for doing online discussions for a course. Students really participate, and it's easy for me as a faculty member. It's surprising how much better it works in practice than a discussion forum that is part of a big multi-purpose course management system.

I love using Piazza for answering student questions; the user interface is unbelievably nicer than anything else I've seen. It is easy to enter text and easy to see what questions need answering; It is just easy to use.
