Moodle (Student) - Using Piazza


UW-Madison has adopted Canvas as its single, centrally supported learning management system. As of 6/1/2018, support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and most Moodle courses has been discontinued. Access to those courses has permanently ended. However, certain Moodle courses that are part of the Adanced Quizzing Content Functional Gaps project are still available on Moodle. Those courses are located on the Moodle Extension site.

This article shows tips for students when using Piazza with their Moodle course

Using Piazza as a Student

  • After clicking on the Piazza activity in Moodle, you will be prompted create a password. You do not have to create a password, but if you want to access Piazza outside of Moodle (i.e. via smart phone/tablet) then creating a password can be easier than having to log in to Moodle to access Piazza
  • When posting a message or replying to an active post, you have the option "Show name as",  you have the option of "[your name]", "anonymous to other students" (but not the instructor), and "anonymous to everyone".If you have a FERPA hold on your name, you may want to use this option.
