What is a Course on Riipen?
Course pages are created by educators to describe the activity their students will work on. A course page is used to advertise the types of projects from companies an educator is looking for.
Employers looking to collaborate with students in a class can connect with educators by checking the course library and applying to opportunities that interest them.
Consider a marketing professor who typically has students create a marketing plan for a hypothetical business, ABC Carpets. In the Riipen version of this experience, the professor would post a course that has students creating a marketing plan for a real-life small business. Companies see this in Riipen's course library and apply to the opportunity. Then, students interact with the company to create a real deliverable to use as part of their marketing strategy.
- Educators can connect with companies by posting a summary of their project ideas, project examples that students can work on, and outcomes of student deliverables.
