How do I record a Canvas Conference video and then load it into GoReact?
Disclosures: I'm an instructor using GoReact with Canvas at the University of Utah and an employee at GoReact.
Short Answer: You can upload just about any video file from your computer into GoReact. The GoReact side of your question is super simple.
Longer Answer: It's a little tricky to get and transfer a video file of a Canvas Conference. The difficulty arises because, Canvas doesn't allow downloads of Canvas Conference recordings (according to this official document). You can't even view them longer than 14 days without a separate account from Big Blue Button (the third-party provider of Canvas Conference). And there isn't currently a way to simply transfer the recordings from Canvas Conference directly into GoReact within the Canvas interface. At the moment, there's no portability of these recording files within Canvas.
Option 1: Screen capture your Canvas Conference session or the recording of it. Then upload the screen capture video file to GoReact as normal.
There are free screen capture options out there. If you use a Mac, you can use QuickTime. For Windows/PC here's a Windows 10 option or a list of free screen capture tools. Paid options are also available if you just like to spend money. Option 2 (partial): If you just want to capture one webcam stream from your Canvas Conference, you can download those. Enable recording for your Canvas Conference. After it has processed, within Canvas go to Conferences > Concluded Conferences. Expand the conference you're interested in, then hit View.
Webcam videos will appear in the lower right corner. You can download these by right-clicking the video and then selecting "Save Video As." These saved video files can then be uploaded into GoReact.
