Installing the GoReact tool on a Moodle Activity (standalone)

NOTE: If the GoReact tool was already installed by your Moodle Administrator, please see Adding GoReact to a Moodle Activity (post-admin setup)

If the GoReact Tool has not been installed by your Admin and you have the ability to install it on the activity level, please follow these instructions. If you do not have the ability to install external tools on the activity level, you will need to contact your Moodle Administrator to install the tool. 

As an instructor, please follow these directions to install the GoReact Tool on a Moodle Activity:

A. Under the Course Administration section click "Turn Editing On"

B. Select "Add an activity or resource"

C. Choose "External Tool" 

D. Press "Add"


E. Enter an activity name and click "Show more..."

F. Under "Launch/cartridge URL" enter

G. Under "Consumer key" enter your email address

H. Under "Shared secret" enter goreact (all lower case)


I. Under Privacy make sure all three boxes are checked

J. Add any other settings you prefer and then click "Save and Display"


The GoReact tool will open and you will need to follow the set up instructions in the tool to finish setting up the activity. Once you click the red "Done" button on the bottom right, you are finished and your activity is ready for student submissions!
