Today we are excited to announce our next great feature for educators on Riipen, “Milestones”. Milestones are configurable objectives that educators would like their students to achieve throughout the life span of their in class projects. Starting today, educators will find a new milestones section inside the “Deliverables” tab when creating a new assignment. From here, an educator can configure the milestones as needed.

Once configured, employers and educators will notice changes to the “Participants” tab when managing their projects. Here they will see a list of all milestones for each team, along with their completion status.

Students and employers will be prompted throughout the life of their projects to complete and confirm milestones.

We hope that everyone can enjoy this new feature as a way to keep them engaged throughout a project, and we look forward to your feedback as always!
