For educators

Riipen for colleges and universities

Riipen is the world's largest experiential learning marketplace. Designed to help educators easily connect with organizations globally; with over 35,000 business and nonprofits at your fingertips to find work-based projects for students.

Educational Partners

How does the Riipen platform work?


Educators post experiences (which correspond to a course) to the marketplace to be matched with employer projects aligned with the desired course objectives and outcomes.


Educators engage actively and efficiently with industry partners and learners through our project management and communication tools to set project milestones and deliverables.


Projects are assigned to students to complete as part of their coursework - students work independently OR as a team on projects AND with flexibility on the hours required to complete.


Educators post or repost their experiences for the next semester to connect their courses with new industry partners and projects.

Riipen in action

"Riipen helps my students develop real-world experience because they are working with real problems that industry partners have brought to the table. What the students get the opportunity to do is take the theories they develop in the course and figure out which ones apply and how to apply them to the particular problem."
