  • Select Students, then My Students
  • Select Term = the current term and Connection = whatever course you want to report
  • Select students who need a particular kudos or flag.
  • Select Flag.
  • Select the flag you want to raise for these students.
  • Select the section as Course Context.
  • Enter a due date and comments if desired. NOTE: If you are selecting multiple students, the same comments will go to all students, so make the comments generic enough to apply to all students.
  • Click Save.
  • Repeat for each flag/kudos you want to raise.
  • Repeat for each of your courses.
