Creating GoReact assignments in Moodle

All of the documentation in the Instructor section still applies to the GoReact app in Moodle, the only thing that is different is where you will create/access the course content.

Important Note

Accessing GoReact via Moodle is a different experience than just going to, because the two systems do not communicate.

To create/access your course/assignment, please log in through Moodle. You will never need to go to to access a Moodle course/assignment.

Before Starting

The GoReact app must be installed by your Moodle Administrator / IT Help Desk before you can add it to your assignments.  See our Administrator setup of GoReact in Moodle for more information.
