Starfish EARLY ALERT (Videos)
Starfish is composed of Starfish Early Alert which is an early warning and student tracking system and Starfish Connect which is an educational support networking system. The Early Alert system alerts students, instructors, and advisors via email when students are not performing as expected in their courses. The Connect system gives students the ability to contact and make appointments with members of their “My Success Network” such as instructors and advisors.
For instructors, Starfish allows you to receive email notifications when flags are raised concerning the academic performance of your students, raise flags when you are concerned about a student’s academic performance, raise flags to recognize students with outstanding academic performance, clear flags when students have shown improvement, enter notes into student folders, and set up office hours for students to schedule appointments with you.
For advisors, Starfish allows you to receive email notifications when flags are raised concerning the academic performance of your advisees, enter notes into the student folders of your advisees, and set up office hours for advisees to schedule appointments with you.
To access the Starfish interface, just log into Blackboard and click the Starfish link.
