What is Piazza?

About Piazza

Piazza is an online problem-solving place where students can ask, answer, and explore questions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, under the guidance of their instructors. In Piazza, students collaborate in a wiki-like interface to come up with answers to questions that may be posed by students or instructors. Instructors can also collaborate on answers in their own space. In addition, Piazza offers a more traditional discussion format.

Piazza updates continuously, so students (and instructors) can stay connected and keep track of the activity around a particular question. Mobile apps are available for both iOS and Android devices. Piazza also supports the editing of computer code, and has a built-in LaTeX editor for equations.

At Indiana University, the Piazza tool allows integration of Piazza in Canvas.
