FACULTY: A Piazza site can be created by the instructor simply clicking the Piazza link in the Tools area of the Blackboard course site. Piazza is a free online gathering place where students can come together to ask, answer, and explore under the guidance of their instructors.
FACULTY/STAFF: Now you can add users to your courses with the Add Misc. User tool found in the course Control Panel under Course Tools. This tool is only for adding staff not eligible to be added through the PeopleSoft Course Update Process (PS CUP), and students who are "sitting in" and will not be officially enrolling in the course, nor adding the course as an auditor, through TigerHub.
