It's remarkable how easy Piazza is to use, given how much complexity it embodies; I wish I could say the same for the many other web-based technologies we're asked to use regularly at my university. I really appreciate it for its ability to help us stay organized when helping a large number of students with a large number of questions, without getting lost or overwhelmed. I also love seeing the extent to which students are able to help each other productively. It's excellent, and I plan to use it for next term's teaching as well.

I tell about Piazza to all my fellow instructors, and I believe that it's a fantastic service.

The students in my course, CS 137 at U. Waterloo like Piazza. For me, that's good enough. We get a lot of interaction compared to previous offerings that have used the old cumbersome newsgroup approach. Nothing beats a web-based solution for this younger generation.

I converted to Piazza within half an hour of hearing a presentation about it in September and I am glad I did. I demand deep engagement from my students in the classroom. With Piazza, for the first time I can expect a level of engagement outside of class that enables me to challenge my students with harder problems. I know they will work through them and learn together using Piazza then come to class knowing what they need to learn. That’s not just a better way to get questions answered, it’s a more effective style of teaching and learning.
