What is Starfish?

Starfish is a communications tool used by faculty to support student academic success. Starfish enables instructors to provide praise or raise concerns regarding their students’ academic performance. Referred to as “Kudos” and “Flags”, these notifications are sent to the students’ ECU email account. Students should communicate with their faculty member about any concerns or questions they have regarding the notification raised. In addition, a university support network has access to the notifications and provides outreach to students as needed.
