What is a project on Riipen?

A project is a problem or an area of opportunity for a business that learners can help provide value to. Employers looking to collaborate with learners can connect with educators by creating a project describing their business needs and matching it with an experience that describes the educators desired learning outcomes.

What is an experience on Riipen?

Experiences allow educators to incorporate experiential learning into their syllabus/program. Your instructor will match with one or more companies to carefully craft projects for you to complete throughout the semester. These projects will take what you are learning inside of the classroom and apply it to real-world projects which are run by real companies.

For example: A marketing professor typically has learners create a marketing plan for a hypothetical business, ABC Carpets. Instead, the professor can use Riipen to post an experience that allows learners to create a marketing plan for a real-life small business. Real companies will see this experience in Riipen's marketplace an request to have the learners work on their marketing project.
