Getting started guide for Instructors

Getting started with GoReact takes 10 minutes or less. If you are using the GoReact tool in your LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.) you will need to go back to the Instructor support page and click the corresponding LMS icon for specific instructions for your LMS. If you're using GoReact directly on, this is the right place to start!

  4. Fill out the next form with your school/organization information and click "Submit."
