Accessing Piazza

Piazza is an online platform used by some Extended Learning instructors for class discussion, reflections and Q&As. Students can post questions, discuss topics, and collaborate and engage with peers.

When you register for a course that uses Piazza, you’ll receive an email with the subject line “Activate your Piazza Account!” from Extended Learning. Inside the email is a link to activate your Piazza account, and set your password (if you’re new to Piazza).

When you click the link, you’ll be taken to a screen that looks like this:

Find your course by first choosing the term. Your course should appear next to Class 1 (Class 2, 3, etc., if you’re enrolled in more than one course). If a class access code is required, enter the code found in the account activation email you received.

Once you’ve activated your account, you’ll receive a Confirmation of Enrollment email. Click on the link found in the email to continue to your class.

Piazza Support

Piazza offers technical support through a student support centre if you have any questions about using the platform.
