Getting started with D2L/Brightspace

Follow

Read this section first

We're excited to have you use GoReact in your LMS and want to ensure you have a smooth and trouble-free experience! To help avoid any confusion for you or your students, please note the following:

The most important thing to know when using this integration is that your courses CANNOT be set up on both goreact.com and on Canvas using the GoReact app. They are separate platforms so that means courses, videos, payments, and students will not transfer between the two, and to access any course materials you and your students must log in directly through the LMS. 

Note: The GoReact recorder app does not work with LMS courses.

Another important thing to know in regards to using the GoReact integration with D2L is that you cannot use D2L's copy course function. This is will not copy over GoReact activities correctly and will cause frustration for you and your students. This has to do with the way our integration works with D2L, if you want more information you can contact GoReact Support.

 

What is the same?

All of the help documentation you see under our Instructor Documentation will apply to the GoReact app in D2L besides the few things mentioned below. 

Using the GoReact app in D2L, you can create activities, record/upload videos, use rubrics and markers, assign presenters to videos, and post grades to the videos that will pass to your Gradebook. 

 

What is different?

You will not see the regular Dashboard that you see on goreact.com. Instead, you will access the GoReact app by creating an assignment and selecting the GoReact tool. Then to access videos submitted to the assignment you will need to click on that assignment again to open the app. 

The GoReact integration does not allow access to the Stimulus-Comment Only activity type, Activity Reports, the Manage Users page (masking as a student, inviting users, transferring registration), or the Trash can. Also in the GoReact integration, you can not create Live Record sessions for all students at once, like you can on the website, and any sessions created by the instructor will not pass grades to the Gradebook, even if the presenter is added.
