Online video assessment system can now be purchased without a department budget
OREM, UTAH (12 September 2012)
The GoReact online video assessment system has now been made available in a student self-pay model. Instructor accounts are free.
The student self-pay option has been much requested by university faculty anxious to use GoReact in their classrooms, but facing tight budgets for online tools.
To use the option, instructors simply sign up for a free instructor account at goreact.com. When creating courses, they choose which student fee meets the needs of their course. All options allow for unlimited use for the student during the course.
In addition to launching the student self-pay option, the new GoReact release also features a new free account option, giving the user 30 minutes of free recording time. Self-signup is now available for all pricing plans.
The new release also features a number of enhancements and improvements, including handy notification icons for comments and video counts, more accessible setup options, and a completely new Activity Report that provides detailed information on student participation for both recording and peer review.
GoReact was developed at Brigham Young University in 2010 as an online, multi-discipline video coaching tool. It was recently made available commercially for anyone to use in academic and corporate applications.
Run entirely in the cloud, GoReact offers solution just right for both classroom and professional environments. The system takes the usual hassles out of recording a learner for coaching or feedback by packaging everything together in one easy-to-use website—web recording, video management, live or recorded peer and instructor feedback, and time-coded comments and ratings along with structured rubrics.
GoReact is useful in dozens of scenarios, including public speaking and presentations, language teaching and interpreter training, teacher observations, and more.
Instructor accounts are free with a 30-second signup at goreact.com.
GoReact was originally developed at Brigham Young University and pioneered live in-class presentation feedback using its patent-pending sync technology. Today, GoReact is the premier platform for video-based skill development across many disciplines, simplifying the lives of instructors and coaches who use video to improve performance-based skills for their students.
