What is a course on Riipen?

Creating a course

Courses are created by educators to describe the type of work their students are looking for, based on the course curriculum. 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 submitting their project to a course in the marketplace.

For example: 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 allows students to create a marketing plan for a real-life small business. Companies see this in Riipen's marketplace and apply to the opportunity. Then, students interact with the company to create a real deliverable to use as part of their marketing strategy.

The following steps will guide you through the process of creating a course. 

  1. You can create a course by clicking the create content button on your dashboard, then selecting create a course. 
  2. Choose to create a course from scratch, use a template, or duplicate a course that you have created in the past.
  3. You will then be directed through a step-by-step process where you will fill in all the relevant details about your course. Note: Clicking the exit button will save your work as a draft, for you to come back and work on later.
  4. Once you have published your course you will find it in your dashboard under my courses. 

Your course will also appear in the marketplace along with all the other courses published by educators on Riipen. Employers will browse this marketplace and have the ability to request to match your course with one of their projects.
