Preparation

How to prepare before your project kicks off with students; make sure your project is ready to go.

What do I do before the project starts?

Congratulations, your project is matched! The next step to expect will be that when the students are given the assignment by their instructor, they will start the project on Riipen. You'll get an email notification when this happens, and the students will send you an introductory message.

Before this time, there are a few things you can do:

  1. Make sure you know what the milestones are for the project. Review the course page to confirm these dates.
  2. Review your project content. Is it complete? Does it reflect any changes you may have discussed with the educator?
  3. Add media or file attachments to the project page that will help the students understand your business and/or complete the project.
  4. Be respectful of the commitment you've made to the educator and students, and communicate with them right away if anything changes on your end.
