User Permission Levels

Please note:

Beginning December 2022, non-higher-ed institutions will have different terminology used in their GoReact experience. The terms Owner/Instructor and Participant/Presenter are interchangeable.

User roles

User roles in GoReact determine permission levels and accessibility of all content. The following defines the roles we use and the level of access each one permits:

  • Owner: Owner of an account or course. All administrative rights granted within the account or course. Can create, view, and manage content and users within the account or course.
  • Admin: All administrative rights within a group, generally reserved for organization administrators.  Organization admins can create, view, and manage content and users in any account or group within the organization.
  • Instructor: Administrative rights within a course.  Can create, view, and manage content and users within the course.  (NOTE: If an instructor is invited into another instructor's Account, they can also create and manage all content and users within that account).
  • Reviewer: This role is typically used for Teaching Assistants. Can only view, critique, and evaluate all videos in a course.  Cannot record sessions or manage content or users.
  • Presenter: This is the Student role. Can record, upload, and view their own videos.  Depending on assignment settings, can view peers' videos and provide feedback on them.

Changing user roles

Please note:

As an instructor, owner, or admin, you also have the ability to change a user's role as long as their permission level is lower than your own, and as long as they are within your own course or organization.

Please follow these instructions to change a user's role:

  1. Select the ellipses icon next to your course name and select "Manage users".


  2. In the panel on the right, click the ellipses icon next to the user whose permission level you wish to change, and then select "edit".


  3. In the profile window, click the permissions dropdown menu, and select the desired user role and it will automatically update.  When you're finished adjusting their role click "close".
