  • The website Piazza.com offers a Q&A forum with minimal overhead. 
    • Students can post questions anonymously and it is rather surprising how many students take advantage of this opportunity. 
    • Additionally, students can contribute answers to questions and instructors can easily see what questions haven’t been answered. Piazza also has instructor endorsement where you can endorse specific questions and answers to steer the class in the right direction.
  • Example: "You can always post your questions on Piazza!"
