Creating GoReact assignments in Blackboard Ultra

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

Important Note

Accessing GoReact via Blackboard 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 Blackboard. You will never need to go to to access a Blackboard course/assignment.

Before Starting

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

Creating GoReact Assignments in Blackboard

Please follow these steps to create your GoReact assignment in Blackboard.

Note, your view in Blackboard may be slightly different, especially verbiage (for example, "Content" may say "Assignments"), but the same steps should apply. If you need further instruction, please reach out to your Blackboard Administrator / IT Help Desk.

    1. After logging into Blackboard, click on the desired course.


    2. From your course’s homepage, below "Course Content" click the + button.


    3. Click "Create."
    4. Select "Teaching tools with LTI connection."


    5. Enter a name for your assignment at the top, and change the drop-down to "visible to students".


      Important Step

      You must enter in a name for your assignment, or the LTI connection will not work.

    6. Below "Configuration URL", enter, and select "Open in new window".


    7. Optionally, create a gradebook entry if you wish the assignment to be graded.

      Be advised, the points in Blackboard need to match the points in GoReact for grade passback to work.

    8. Finish entering any additional settings, and click "Save".
    9. Important Step: Lastly, as the instructor, you must open the GoReact assignment and finish selecting any desired settings before your students are able to submit.

For more information on GoReact Assignment settings, please review this guide: Assignment Settings.
