Piazza is a powerful online platform where students and instructors can ask questions, post answers and share knowledge and ideas – in real-time and at any time. Piazza comes from the Italian word for plaza, a town square where the community comes together to share information. That's what 50,000 professors and millions of students around the globe are doing when they turn to Piazza to collaborate and learn from each other, while at the same time replacing the clutter of emails and disconnected class discussion threads. Best of all: it's free, easy to use, and accessible! Piazza has partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to offer a free assistive technology app to members of our community who have trouble typing, moving a mouse or reading.
