Pros and cons of piazza.com

I was sharing my handouts, ppts and material of daily classes. I was also maintaing record of lectires with dates. I can also sharing marks of quizzes and assignments held in the classrooms. I was also announcing important announcement or notices.

Pros

The most important features was the grouping of lectures, homework and assignments.

Cons

I found that I cannot make a quiz and take from students online. I cannot take video class.

Reasons for choosing Piazza

I did not use any other software before pizza. It was my first product. Due to quiz I shifted to Google classroom but due to limited space for Google classroom sharing by 15 Gb for Gmail, I preferred piazza for sharing materials with students.

A Good Concept Gone Mediocre

Overall, I liked Piazza as it brought together my students and their thoughts in a never-before-seen manner. However, the approach towards making this education platform more accessible to instructors and students across the world seem to be at crossroads with their founder's original vision with whom I have had a discussion during the early days of Piazza.

Pros

As an instructor I have used Piazza across countries since its inception. One feature that attracted me to Piazza was the ability to connect to with students on an almost real time basis giving the students the option to interact with instructors anonymously. Piazza has fostered groups in many courses I have taught from the undergraduate to the Masters/PhD level. The integration of LaTeX support was of great utility to instructors like me who teach course that involve lots of mathematical equations.

Cons

There is no option to set up a timed quiz and there is no integration with cloud storage options such as Google Drive, OneDrive, and Dropbox. Also, integration of short screen-recordings of instructor/student posts would add great value to discussions.

I used it for my Master's class

Pros

It let us talk to any of our professors and classmates which would have been otherwise hard given the current remote situation.

Cons

It had a few bugs. It wouldn't let me upload pictures from my mobile.

An Average Forum Platform

There doesn't need to be much integration in forum software, and Piazza serves its purpose.

Pros

This forum is best used for a virtual learning environment where a community can help answer any questions.

Cons

The UI is a bit jumbled and it's hard to find what you are looking for. The search algorithm could use some refinement.
