Once you have the tool added, you can start creating GoReact assignments in Brightspace. To learn how to do this, please see How to add a GoReact assignment to Brightspace.

Important Note

In order to increase security and improve the GoReact experience, we have recently made the following changes:

  • If you have the old Launch URL in the GoReact tool that contains "https://goreact.com..." it must be updated in your platform.  (If you have the new URL that contains "https://lti.goreact..." then you are good to go and no changes are needed there.)
  • For all existing LMS users, the old key and secret with goreact and your email address will need to be updated. Please work with our support team to provide a new, unique key and secret.
  • For new users setting up GoReact in your LMS for the first time, follow the steps in this guide.  

Please note that your D2L administrator will need to reach out to our support team here to make these adjustments.  In the coming months, existing assignments will become inaccessible in some cases until these changes are made.  As soon as we've determined the date that this will be required by we'll add it here, but we recommend making these changes as soon as possible.
