Courses are created by educators to describe the activity their students will work on throughout the course. A course page is used to advertise the types of projects from companies an educator is looking for or the types of skills they want their students to practice.
Employers looking to collaborate with students in a class can connect with educators by checking the marketplace and applying to opportunities that interest them.
Consider a marketing professor who typically has students create a marketing plan for a hypothetical business, ABC Carpets. In the Riipen version of this experience, the professor would post a course that has students creating a marketing plan for a real-life small business. Companies see this in Riipen's marketplace and apply to the opportunity. Then, students interact with the company to create a real deliverable to use as part of their marketing strategy.
Educators can connect with companies by posting a summary of their project ideas, project examples that students can work on, and outcomes of student deliverables.
Educators can expand their classroom and incorporate experiential learning into their syllabus using our course templates.
Students, educators, and employers can manage their project using the milestone dates set by the educator.
Educators can access projects, track student progress, and invite companies from their own network to participate.
