Piazza is a web forum where instructors and students can discuss course content easily, with its ability to display LaTeX is especially beneficial for mathematics and engineering. The threaded layout of discussions facilitates back and forth discussion. Additionally, students can post questions anonymously, creating a friendly environment that encourages class participation. At UBC, Piazza is integrated with Canvas.
