Piazza is a free online gathering place where students can ask, answer, and explore 24/7, under the guidance of their instructors. Students as well as instructors can answer questions, fueling a healthy, collaborative discussion. You can go into deeper detail on complex topics and spot areas where students are struggling.
A member of the Piazza team will be on campus Friday to demonstrate the product and answer any questions that you or your TA's might have, as well as to gather feedback.
You can learn more about Piazza at http://piazza.com.
Victor Krimshteyn is a recent graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied both philosophy and computer science. He was introduced to Piazza as a student in an Artificial Intelligence course and quickly became intrigued by the possibility of social technologies to improve teaching and learning.
