Use a unique course title

Naming the course so that your students can identify the title, section, and semester can help avoid confusion when they register. The course title is the only identifier your students will see, so we recommend being as specific as possible!

  1. If you copied assignments from a previous course, take a minute to review them.  Check the due dates and other assignment settings.
  2. To create a new assignment, click the blue "Create Assignment" button at the bottom of the assignment list on the left.

Invite your students


To invite users to your course, you have three options:

  1. Direct students to GoReact.com where they can self-register.
  2. Send or post a private group join link. To get this link, click the ellipses ⋮ to the right of the course name, and select "Invite Users." Then, copy and paste the group join link on the left to a place that your students will see it (like a syllabus or course web page).
  3. Send an invitation directly via email. To send individual invitations, click the ellipses ⋮ to the right of the course name, and select "Invite Users."  Enter each user's email address here and click "Send Invitations."
