How learners use Riipen

General information about Riipen for learners.

Updated over a week ago

All Riipen projects are designed to help learners develop their skills through experiential learning. Through Riipen, educators connect with employers and curate real projects that will be completed by their learners for academic credit, or as extracurricular activities.

As a learner, you start by joining an experiential learning activity, called an experience, that is created by your educator. Your educator will choose whether you will work individually or in teams, and set the overall parameters like the length and project topics.
