A Starfish kiosk is an interactive website that allows students to check-in for appointments and drop-ins with users who are associated with that kiosk. A single Starfish kiosk can display multiple offices (e.g., if an academic advising center and a career counseling office share physical space, students can check in to scheduled appointments and drop-ins for each office on a single kiosk, provided that users in those offices have access to Starfish).
If you have not seen a Starfish kiosk, the Kiosk and Waiting Room Mangement Guide (PowerPoint) will orient you to the main workflows associated with having students check in for scheduled appointments and drop-ins at a Starfish kiosk.
Your local unit needs to provide computer hardware and IT support. The device used for a kiosk should have Internet Explorer and reliable internet access.
