I wouldn't say that Piazza reduces faculty workload, but it does improve teaching. When a student is facing a project deadline and is stuck, that provides a teaching opportunity where they are paying attention. I am often answering questions on Piazza late at night when I and the students are not on campus, so it provides remote connectivity.

Piazza has proven to be a valuable tool. I answer questions one time and the entire class has access to those answers.

Piazza is working extremely well for me. The discussions are much tighter than what I used to see on email lists/news groups. We're getting to better answers with much less work.

Lorenzo SadunMathematics, UT

Piazza is a nice auxiliary meeting-place (as the name implies!). I let the students use it themselves, which they do plenty, and the TA and I will chime in with occasional hints.
