One of the best ways to connect with companies while your Course is open is to request projects from employers rather than waiting to receive requests.
Go to the Project marketplace. You'll also find it under "Explore" in the navigation bar at the top of the page.
The Projects here have been posted by companies that are actively seeking to integrate in educator's Courses. Keep in mind that these Projects aren't tailored for any specific Courses, so they are designed to be open and adaptable to your Course objectives.
When you find a company or Project that interests you, click "Request Project" to submit a request for them to work with you and your class.
You'll be prompted to either create a new Course page for this Project, or to request this Project for one of your currently open Course pages.
After you submit this request, you should get a confirmation notification at the top right corner of your screen that you've sent a request to connect to the project administrators.
The project administrators will receive a request on the platform and an email, letting them know that you have requested their Project for your Course. You will be notified by the platform once someone accepts or denies your request to connect.
Continue the conversation you have started in the Riipen message centre, (the chat bubble located in the top right corner of the platform).
