Getting started with D2L/Brightspace

Using GoReact in D2L/Brightspace (read this first)


We're excited to have you use GoReact in your LMS and want to ensure you have a smooth and trouble-free experience! To help avoid any confusion for you or your students, please note the following: 

Important Note

When using this integration, your courses CANNOT be set up on both goreact.com and in D2L. These are separate platforms so that means courses, videos, payments, and student registrations are not interchangeable between them. To create or access any D2L course content, you and your students must log in directly through your LMS.  Do not create anything on goreact.com.  (Yep, we're foot-stomping a lot on this one - it really is important!)

Also Note: In order for the GoReact tool to work properly across all browsers, you will need to check the option in your D2L settings to open the GoReact assignment in a new window.

What is the same as goreact.com?


  • After you open up an assignment, the GoReact dashboard will work the same way as it does in goreact.com, except for the navigation between courses and activities.  Activity Settings, Adding Videos, and Critiquing Videos will all be the same.
  • All of the help documentation you see in our goreact.com Instructor Section will apply to the GoReact app in D2L, with a few exceptions noted below. 

What is different from goreact.com?


  • Navigation between courses and assignments can only be done in D2L and not within the GoReact tool.  
  • Instructors cannot create sessions for students (this method is often used for live event activities). Doing so will prevent grades from passing to the Gradebook. 
  • The GoReact mobile recorder app cannot be used with LMS courses.
