Heart icon next to a student's name?

So one of the students on my roster now has a heart icon following his name.  It definitely wasn't there yesterday.  Any idea what might cause this?  Because it's...well, it's just weird.

That definitely is weird - never seen it before.  Does your school allow users to change their names?  If so, they could have edited in an icon.  If you hover it does it show a URL?  Is your school running an LTI that may add it - maybe some sort of student success tracking package?

Hi  @bourjaim  - A few months ago  @abunag  offered a few ideas as to why a student may have a new icon by their name. After some time, what did you learn? It would be interesting to learn what was causing the change on your roster.

There are suddenly two heart icons appearing next to one of my student's name. It's bizarre and I can't find out how to get rid of them. The name shows up like this in the email list.
