Do You Share Teaching Materials Online with Students?

Much of the material we generate for teaching is digital, perhaps most obviously lecture notes and presentation slides. Some instructors put this material online as part of the course materials available to students.

For most of us, I think, this kind of material is not consciously designed to be used by students in this way, but that doesn’t mean that it would be impossible to do so.

One of our readers recently suggested that we cover this topic: Do you share your teaching materials online with your students? Why or why not? If you do, what do you do to make sure the material is both useful to you as the one teaching the class and useful to your students as the ones taking the class? Any stories of success (or failure) out there? Please share in the comments section!
