Educators can refer a company from their own network to work with their class on Riipen. As a company referred from your personal network rather than from Riipen's network, the company will gain full access to your school portal.
There are two ways an educator can refer companies from their network.
If you are an educator of a course:
Click the invite companies button on your course page.
Enter the name of the company you would like to invite. If the company already has a Riipen account, you will see their name appear. Select that. If not, you will see an option to create a new company with that name.
Enter the email of the person you know at that company.
Optionally, input their company name and project details for them to save them time and give them a good idea of what type of project you are looking for. This will create a draft that the invited employer can modify.
Hit submit! This will send a unique sign up link to the employer.
You can view who you have invited in the requests tab of the course page.
If you are an administrator on Riipen for your school portal:
Go to your school portal, which you can find under my schools in your dashboard.
Go to the companies tab in the left-hand menu.
Use the invite company option in the same way described above.
You can view who you have invited in the school pass field of the companies tab.
