Piazza - Getting Started (UW-Madison)

What is Piazza Q&A?

Piazza Q&A is a student-driven question and answer service that some instructors choose to use for their courses. Students can collaboratively work on answers by adding, modifying, or deleting content. Instructors can view students' questions and answers, post their own questions and answers, and endorse the best responses.

Piazza Q&A is operated and supported by a vendor--it is not a UW-Madison-provided tool. However, UW-Madison and Piazza have reached an agreement that provides protection for student and faculty data and intellectual property. For more information, contact

Piazza Q&A can be used in conjunction with the Canvas learning management system.
