Creating GoReact activities in D2L/Brightspace (new content experience)

This document will walk you through how to add a GoReact assignment to your D2L course if you are using the New Content Experience (for the old content experience see this guide).

Please Note: The GoReact app needs to be installed by your D2L administrator prior to creating assignments.

  1. Navigate to your D2L/Brightspace course and select "Content."
  2. Add a new (or select an existing) module.
  3. Click "Add."


  4. Select "External Tool Activity."


  5. Scroll down and select "Create New LTI Link."


  6. Enter a title for your Activity and enter as the URL.
  7. Click "Create and Insert."


  8. After the GoReact tool loads, select the GoReact activity type, click "Next," and select any additional activity settings as needed.  When you're finished, click "Done."


  9. Click the three dots at the top right of the D2L assignment and select "Edit."


  10. Select "Open in a new tab" and click "Save."  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). 


  11. That's it!
