DLC Responsibilities

Train and support students on BuildFire application. BuildFire is a web site that lets you enter information you would like to have in an application on your tablet or phone. Once you have entered the info, you install the BuildFire app on your device, open it up and enter the code BuildFire gives you. It then behaves like the app you wish you had and delivers the info you entered on the Web. It is free unless you publish to the app store.

DLC will be available for student support.
