Extended Abstract

Educators have a host of options for distributing video content. But, what about interactive video? GoReact offers an easy and affordable way for educators and peers to provide precise, contextual feedback on student videos. Much more than simple video chat or generic commenting, GoReact’s time-coded text, audio or video comments point to the exact moment in a student recording where instruction is required. Suitable for both synchronous and asynchronous assignments, come see how teachers are using this technology in and out of the classroom to drive rapid skill development and engagement. GoReact is enabling the online teaching of performance-based disciplines like communication, debate, law, language training, theater and performing arts, and more. Subjects that have been difficult to address without face-to-face instruction are now easy to accommodate online.

GoReact is flexible and easy to adapt to your curriculum. With customizable rubrics, markers and ratings you can quickly generate quantitative data from student videos and use that data to build awareness in students, to chart student progress over time, or to measure students proficiency against the rest of their class.

GoReact is a platform that strengthens the relationship between students and teachers and improves the interactivity such that student outcomes are dramatically improved. Maybe most importantly, it’s fun to use!
