GoReact was built with colleges and universities in mind, with the terminology geared towards such use cases (instructors, courses, and students). However, our approach to improving skills through video feedback has many applications outside of traditional school settings. Many professionals have found creative and effective ways to use GoReact. The intent of this guide is to explain how GoReact is structured and to help you get started using GoReact in a professional setting.
The structure of GoReact is as follows:
Organization > Instructor Accounts > Courses > Activities > Sessions (video submissions from student accounts)
Understanding this structure can assist in setting up and using GoReact effectively. Here are some sample use cases for non-education organizations and a few things to consider while setting up your content in GoReact.
Example activity types:
Self-Submit activities allow participants to record their own videos and submit them for feedback. This is the most common Activity type used.
For a student planning to make sales their career, memorizing a pitch isn’t enough to be successful. To perfect their approach, tone, and delivery it’s vital for these students to watch themselves sell. That’s why sales programs around the country use GoReact to teach basic sales skills, provide feedback on pitches, and conduct mock sales interactions.
Example activities: Sales training, mentoring, coaching
Live Event activities are similar to Self-Submit activities, except feedback can be given live at the time of the recording. Instructors can critique these videos in real-time either in-person or remotely.
Example activities: Live observations
Stimulus Activities allow instructors to provide a stimulus/prompt video for students to respond to by recording their own video. This recorded response will be synchronized with the stimulus media, so both videos can be played back simultaneously.
Example activities: Mock interviews
Comment Only activities can be used anytime that you want participants to watch and respond to a video.
Example activities: Training videos
Example activity settings:
- Rubrics - A structured evaluation that can include a set of standard certification criteria.
- Markers - Re-usable color-coded labels that can be used to mark-up videos. (i.e. eye contact, active listening, vocal filler)
- Mobile App - The easiest way for participants to record and upload their videos!
