Creating GoReact assignments in Canvas

Creating GoReact assignments in Canvas

(If you haven't set up the GoReact tool yet, please see our guides for Adding GoReact to your Canvas account or Adding GoReact to Canvas via URL before continuing.)

Here's a quick video if you'd like to see the activity creation process in action.

  1. In Canvas, create an Assignment.
  2. Enter an Assignment Name, Points, and any other desired settings.
  3. Change the "Submission Type" to "External Tool."


  4. In the "Enter or find an External Tool URL" field, click "Find."  Select GoReact and then click "Select."


  5. Check the box for "Load This Tool In A New Tab."

    Please Note

    For the best overall experience, we highly recommend loading the GoReact tool in a new tab.  This will allow students to record and critique videos using the entire screen, rather than being forced into a small window (iframe). 

  6. Finish the assignment setup, then choose "Save" or "Save and Publish."
  7. Open your new assignment in Canvas.  Select a GoReact activity type and choose your activity settings as needed.  When you're finished, click "Done" and you're all set!  For more on GoReact activities see our other documentation on Activities
