As a learner, the first thing you need to do on Riipen is join an experience and view the projects that your educator has approved for you.

There are a few different ways you might be invited to an experience:

Join via access code

  1. Sign up as a learner here or at the link provided by your instructor.

  2. You'll first be prompted to fill in your profile information and your categories of interest.

  3. Next, you'll see a prompt to find a portal or find your experience, depending on whether you were given a general sign up link or a specific one for your portal. If your instructor gave you a direct link to your experience, go there directly and skip to step 6. If you do not have a direct link, proceed to step 4.

  4. Find your institution's portal and click on the portal name to go to its profile.

  5. Click the "Experiences" tab to view all the portal's experiences, and select the one you are trying to join.

  6. On the experience page, you will see a button that reads: "Join experience." Click this and enter your access code.

Congratulations! You've joined the experience. You can now view the approved projects for the experience by scrolling down to the projects table.

Joining an experience also makes you a member of that experience's portal.

Join via invitation

  1. Click the link in the email from inviting you to Riipen. This will take you to the sign up form. If you already have a Riipen account, it will instead accept the invite and redirect you to the experience and you can skip the remainder of the steps

  2. You'll next be prompted to fill in your profile information and your categories of interest.

  3. After this step, you'll be prompted to view your experiences. You can exit to your dashboard here.

In your dashboard, you should see "My experiences" as a heading and listed beneath any experiences you have been invited to. If you've already been added to a team within the experience, you will also see "My teams" and any teams you've been added to.

Your next step is to start your project.
