For Regular Sign-ups

Option 1: Students Signing Up Directly

Here are instructions you can provide to the students:

  1. Sign Up: Go to your course page and click "Join as Student": <insert link to your Riipen course page>
    If you haven't created an account yet, click "Sign up to Join" and create a student account first.
  2. When prompted, enter the access code provided to you by your instructor.
  3. Go to the Projects tab, and click on your assigned project. Click "Start This Project" when it’s time to sign up for the project and set up your team.

Note: The access code can be found on the “Students” tab of your course/internship page under “Invite Students”.

Option 2: Inviting Students to Teams

As an educator, you can invite students to projects and form their teams, if you prefer to have a higher degree of control on team formation. Click “Create Team” from the Projects tab of your course page to invite students into teams by email addresses.

Students can then be provided the instructions below.

  1. Look for an email from noreply@riipen.com inviting you to join a team on Riipen. Click the signup link in that email to create a student account. Make sure to use the email you were invited with to create your account.
  2. You’ve now been added to the team, and can see your team in your dashboard: https://app.riipen.com/me/dashboard.
  3. From the team page you can see the upcoming milestones, the project content and your fellow team members.
  4. Select “Start this project” when it’s time to introduce your team to the employer. This creates a message thread with the employer which you can access from your team page.
