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!  (See our Reviewer/TA or Student guides if you're not an instructor.)

Invite your students

The easiest way to invite student presenters to your course is to use a Group Join Link. To find this link:

    1. Select the "Users" tab and click the "Invite Users" button.


    2. Copy the Group Join Link on the left. mceclip0.png


You can then provide this link to your students to allow each student to register for your course.
