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 have any subscription fee waived, and will gain full access to your school portal.
There are two ways an educator can refer companies from their network.
A) If you're an educator of a course:
Click the "Invite Companies" button on your assignment page.
Enter the name of the company you’d like to invite. If the company already has a Riipen account, you’ll see their name appear. Select that. If not, you’ll 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 the user time and give them a good idea of what type of project you're 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 email address you've input.
You can view who you've invited on the "Requests" tab of the course page.
B) If you're 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've invited in the “School pass" field of the Companies tab.
