The online video feedback tool GoReact is being offered for free to Vanderbilt faculty and students through June 30th.
Why would I use GoReact?
You can create a video assignment and then have students upload or record video submissions. You and/or peers can then leave time-coded text, video, or audio feedback. Assignments can be graded using points or customizable rubrics. GoReact also shows reports that allow you to track student progress.
This tool is useful for when you need to give feedback on student presentations, practice teaching demos, or any other performance-based skill.
It’s important to note that GoReact is not a teleconferencing tool. Consider using Zoom when you need to hold synchronous class meetings or Kaltura when you need to create, store, and deliver video content. Below are some links to get you started with those tools.
