H. Click the dropdown arrow on the activity you just created and select "Edit properties in place..."
I. Check "Open as External Resource." 
 
PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent security updates in Chrome 64 and above, checking "Open as External Resource" is currently required in order for Adobe Flash to work properly for anyone using the Chrome browser.  Brightspace D2L is working on an update for this issue, but in the meantime, if this option is not checked, the Chrome browser cannot be used with your GoReact assignments.
