Find your course

If you are starting an in-class project, you will need to sign up and join your course on Riipen using a unique access code provided by your instructor.

  1. Signup on Riipen as a student.

  2. Go to the course page directly via the link your instructor gave you, or use the search to find your course.

  3. On your course page, you will see a button that reads: join as student. Click this and enter your access code for the course.
    Tip: If you see a button which reads view projects instead, that means you have already been added to the course and do not need to enter the access code.

  4. Click the view projects button to see what companies your instructor has confirmed for your class. Be sure to confirm in your instructor which company you are supposed to work with before continuing!

  5. Find your assigned project in this list, and click the title for more information.

Next, create or join a team

Do not create a team without confirming your team with your instructor first.

  1. On the project page for the company you are working with, click start this project.

  2. a. If your team is already signed up and you are trying to join an existing team: select I want to join an existing team and click request to join. This sends the existing team members a request for you to join the team.
    b. If you are setting up a new team: select I want to create a new team. You will need to enter your team members' emails (the emails they already use or will use for Riipen).
    c. If you are working by yourself: select I want to create a new team and skip adding other team members.

  3. Write a message to introduce your team to the company. For tips on what to write, click here.
