GoReact

GoReact is a feedback-oriented, cloud-based video software used for video assessment. It’s designed to be more user and mobile friendly than other similar software. Recordings submitted through GoReact can be assessed in both live and recorded settings, making it useful for professors to grade students, faculty to evaluate professors, and many other professionals to review their own, and others’, video performance. It has tools to help feedback become a more interactive experience, including time-stamped annotations, feedback streams, and multimedia comments. GoReact can be integrated directly into Canvas and other LMSs to avoid clunky platform toggling. It’s a simple way to center self-awareness and skill development in an online setting.

Uses

  • Teach performance-based classes (such as sign language, dance, or public speaking) remotely.
  • Observe and train student teachers, nurses, and other professionals.
  • Make video lectures more interactive and accessible in online courses.
  • Store videos in the cloud for future access and sharing.
  • Collect data on student performance and progress.
