Overview: GoReact

What is GoReact?

GoReact is an interactive video platform for competency and skills-based learning and assessment with many opportunities for time-stamped feedback and critiques from self, peers, instructors, in person, or remote.

Key features and benefits:

  • Seamless integration with the CLE.
  • Access outside of the CLE with GoReact.com and invite external participants, such as guest lecturers or graders.
  • Easily customized rubrics for consistent grading.
  • Allows time-stamped feedback using text, audio, or video.
  • Record directly in GoReact app, link, or upload external video.
  • Track student engagement and progress, and gain insights with assignment, course, and rubric reports.

Why Use GoReact?

  • Competency-based learning, targeted remediation.
  • Clinical skills, procedures, treatment techniques, alone, in pairs/groups.
  • Patient interaction or patient counseling role-plays.
  • Ethical dilemma discussions or case discussions.
  • Oral presentations or explanations of concepts.

How to access GoReact?

It's important to note that there are two ways you can set up GoReact for a course. Before you set up GoReact for your course, you'll need to decide whether to have your participants access GoReact through goreact.com or through the CLE. Courses set up in the CLE and goreact.com are on separate platforms. Therefore, courses, videos, and rosters are NOT interchangeable between the CLE and goreact.com. Additionally, grades in goreact.com are not passed back automatically to the CLE. 

Please consult the UCSF Instructional Design team or your school course managers for guidance on how best to setup GoReact to meet your needs.

Accessing through the CLE

Anyone with UCSF MyAccess can use GoReact in a CLE course. You and your participants must be logged in to the CLE to create or access any GoReact content.

When using the CLE/Moodle integration:

  • Grades are automatically passed back to the CLE grade book.
  • Instructors cannot create recording ‘sessions’ for students.
  • The GoReact mobile recorder app cannot be used.

See the GoReact for Moodle instructor guide for step-by-step instructions for setting up your course.

Accessing via goreact.com

Create courses and assignments through GoReact.com, and invite other instructors, reviewers, and students to join the course (role-based permission is assigned upon invite). All participants will be prompted to create an account or log in using existing credentials.

Invite participants through their UCSF email

This restricts the email address used to create new accounts and avoid confusion. See the goreact.com instructor guide for step-by-step instructions for setting up your course.

Add GoReact as you would add any CLE course activities and resources.
