Knowing that educators and students are already coping with so much change right now, we designed these features to be simple, intuitive, and easy to implement.
OREM, Utah (PRWEB) July 09, 2020
This week, GoReact—the #1 video-based assessment tool for online curricula—announced four extensions to its video coaching technology for higher education.
GoReact allows students to record themselves demonstrating their level of competence and makes those recordings available to instructors for comment, peer review, and formative assessment. These new capabilities will give students and educators enhanced options for videos to be recorded.
In these times, it’s essential to have as many high-quality options for online education as possible. The recently released tools from GoReact are paving the way for a more flexible, engaging, and equitable learning experience.
“These tools are a timely response to increased demand for video assessment that works with previous classroom models, as well as emerging online and hybrid approaches,” said Brent Bingham, GoReact’s Chief Strategy and Product Officer. “Knowing that educators and students are already coping with so much change right now, we designed these features to be simple, intuitive, and easy to implement.”
The new features include:
Extended Multi-Camera Support: GoReact recording sessions can now host up to nine participants. This feature also allows for more camera angles during presentations, student teaching, performances, and skill demonstrations.
Screen Capture: Presenters can share their computer screen during GoReact recordings. This feature seamlessly allows instructors and students to share documents, images, YouTube videos, applications, and so much more.
Picture-in-Picture: Presenters can overlay the feed from their webcam while simultaneously sharing their computer screen. That means that instructors can still see student presenters while they present what is on their screen when using GoReact’s new screen capture.
Mobile Friendly: To create a more equitable experience, students can now record and leave feedback in GoReact from a mobile browser. Students can join group recordings, leave peer feedback, and view an instructor’s feedback from their smartphones.
As instructors prepare for the upcoming fall semester, these four features are now live and available to users in all regions.
