Recording a video

This article is for Students. Click here for the Instructor article.

Please note:

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

Follow these steps to record a video in GoReact.  If you are going to upload your video instead, see Uploading a video. If you are going to use a mobile device, see the Mobile device guides.

  1. Select the applicable assignment and click "Start Assignment."

    When you speak, you'll want the audio to be in the green zone. (For more information on audio, see our Troubleshooting: audio guide.)  Then click "Record."
