What is ECU CONNECT?
ECU CONNECT (formerly Starfish) is a communications tool used by faculty to support student academic success. ECU CONNECT 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.
- You can now access ECU CONNECT through Pirate Port. You will need to search Pirate Port (top) for the application box.
- Preferred names and pronouns are now appearing in ECU CONNECT if listed Pirate Port/My Information. It will also be how the student is addressed in the Starfish emails.
