What can I use LMU Build for?

LMU Build is intended to be a creative platform for students, faculty, and staff to explore web development and design. You do not need to be affiliated with any particular college or department — Build is available university-wide, for beginners and experts alike.

Faculty: If you would like to incorporate LMU Build into your course but are not sure where to start, feel free to reach out to your college’s Instructional Technologist for ideas. While we do not have extensive resources available here yet, Brigham Young University has created a great start-up guide for faculty here, including sample rubrics and syllabi.
