"Complicated and can be useful but there are better softwares"

What do you like best?

There are two things I really like. First, any post (notes or question) can be pinned and can be assigned to a folder. This helps users to filter old posts by specific topics. Second, posts can be anonymous or public.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is just that there are more user-friendly tools. Specifically, in an educational setting, Blackboard is a much better online tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I do recommend this product. It is not a bad tool to use in an educational setting. I do not recommend using this product in combination with another tool, such as Blackboard, because they are quite similar. Blackboard is a better tool, however, if using Piazza, I would use it alone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Piazza has been used at the university I am employed at. I have used it to communicate with the students in my class. It does lead to better communication between the students and allows me to answer questions in a way that all students can see the answer.

"Great Learning Tool"

What do you like best?

I love how interactive this platform is. It Is so easy to ask questions, get answers, and interact with other using this platform. I used it specifically while in a statistics class which was great because it provided the opportunity for peer to peer question and answer dialogue which was mutually beneficial. Students got the answers that they were looking for, and those who were answering questions were displaying understanding of material and practicing implementation.

What do you dislike?

The user interface could be more updated, but that doesn't take away from the excellence of the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those considering Piazza, I would recommend it as a learning tool. Particularly if you have larger groups that need to be able to ask questions. The other great capability with Piazza is the ability to endorse answers, allowing everyone to chime in, but giving an endorsement to the best and most accurate answer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem that Piazza solved was a need for a place to ask questions, where professors weren't having to answer every question, and where the same question didn't have to be answered multiple times. The benefits were efficiency, mainly in time for everyone. But the other benefit was in the learning process, explaining concepts helped students learn and implement their knowledge.

"Simple and Effective"

What do you like best?

Piazza is an effective platform for a streamlined forum. I used it as a student for an undergraduate class, and it was a simple way to communicate with the class and professor to ask and answer questions about the course and assignments. I enjoyed the ability to easily have access to this type of communication and it greatly improved my productivity in the course.

What do you dislike?

I did not have too much that I disliked, however, one thing I wish was better was the organization of posts. I think the platform would be more effective if it were possible to organize the posts into specific categories (e.g. a category for each assignment, etc.). This way it would be much easier to search through posts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Piazza is a simple to use and effective platform that I would recommend for use with any large groups such as classes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Piazza to improve communication between the professor and students in an undergraduate course. WIth PIazza, academic courses are becoming more streamlined and students are more engaged in the course.

"Piazza is a no-frills approach to communications, wiki formation, and mathematical discussion."

What do you like best?

The interface is functional. Posts are easily categorized and searchable with options to add media. LaTeX functionality is good. Information is stored in a Wiki like format, which adds more permanancy than other forum like offering such as Slack or Discord.

What do you dislike?

Piazza offers opportunities for social networking and job searching, but are these features actually useful when we have services like LinkedIn?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I participated in a graduate level applied mathematics course. The Piazza format is far superior to our university's online education platform, Canvas. The layout provides a strong medium for exchanging discussion on mathematical topics. Couple this with the ability to share files and images, and we have a good repository for user questions and answers to be understood.

"Great tool for collaborative learning and discussions"

What do you like best?

Easy to communicate with a closed group, share updates, start new threads and discussions, customizable alerts to mailbox. Where to use- university setup for example, for a discussion among professor and students of the particular course. For example professor can create tabs like exams, assignment number one, two, etc and then students can click the tabs and create various threads like problems in assignment three and start discussions where everyone contributes. this is very easy to use and recommended for even an office setup.

What do you dislike?

Has limited, by invitation closed group access only

Recommendations to others considering the product

please use this for close group discussion

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Real time, customizable communication with a group of people with features like endorsing, private/public access etc

"Great Platform for Student/Teacher Communication"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to post a question or comment, so everyone in the class can see it and have the opportunity to respond. It's a super simple UI on the computer and mobile.

Sometimes it can be glitchy when I want to type an answer. There will be times where it won't let me type.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Effective student/teacher communication through Piazza has benefited me throughout undergrad.

"Convenient Q&A"

What do you like best?

I like that not only are we allowed to ask professors questions, we are also allowed to leave comments under other students' posts in case a professor cannot get to the question immediately.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the general format of the website, it can seem unwieldy at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Piazza allows me to ask questions to professors in a more convenient and streamlined way than an email.

"Piazza at the Masters Degree Level"

What do you like best?

For onlijne education, it provides a needed communication like that is easy to use, easy to search . Can we be done for each separate class. Great for public announcements.

What do you dislike?

"Used for online math course"

What do you like best?

Piazza was straightforward to use for the online calculus course that I had used it for. Links, videos, and resources provided on the instructor was easily accessible on piazza.

What do you dislike?

There were too many notifications as a students and sometimes the website could feel overwhelmed due to all the tabs that could be open for the duration of the online course.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This was not used in a business setting per say. It was used in an online math course to promote peer communication in helping each other in math problems.

"Best forum for discussion/announcements/post"

What do you like best?

The user interface is very easy. It serves as a best discussion platform. One can reference previous posts, endorse them, continue to the thread, make announcements and pretty much anything that one would need on a discussion forum.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about it. It seems pretty good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the best thing one can get for a forum.
