Bb-PiazzaEducational Technology will be adding the Piazza.com building block to Blackboard on Wednesday, October 2 during business hours. This will not cause any interruption in Blackboard services.

Piazza.com is a free online service for questions and answers. It functions similar to a discussion board, but with much more interactivity between instructors and students. It fosters instructor-to-student and peer-to-peer instruction. Currently, over 100 S&T courses have been created at Piazza.com. Now it will be available directly through Blackboard as a plug-in.

For information on how to integrate Piazza into your own Blackboard course, follow the link below:



  • You will need to create a Piazza.com account before integrating into Blackboard. It is a free service and it only takes a few minutes to create an account.
  • Under step 3 of the instructions linked above, the step should read: “Hover on Build Content and select Web Link to add the link.” (Note use of the phrase “Web Link”.)
