Uma breve descrição:

“Piazza is an online platform that facilitates interaction among Students and instructors in an efficient and intuitive manner. We started as a way to help students who were stuck on homework problems get unstuck with the help of their classmates, TAs and professors.

Over time, with valuable feedback from thousands of instructors, the product has evolved to become a centralized place for instructors to conduct all class related communication where:

  • you can answer students’ questions once for all students to see
  • your students can engage with classmates in online discussion
  • you can post class related announcements
  • you can post class files, resources and the class syllabus
  • you can conduct polls to get a sense of where students stand
  • you can receive/send private messages from/to students on more sensitive subject matters”
