    I'm doing a survey and I need to know if you would fill out the poll that would be helpful.
    Also it would be greatly appreciated if some of you guys would PM me the teacher's websites however if you're not comfortable with that for whatever reason that's cool too.

    By worksheets I mean any of these things:
    Practice Tests
    Practice Quizzes
    Problem Sets
    Homework
    Class or Lecture Notes
    Study Guides

    This is applicable for both High School and College Students.

    it depends on, the class, the school, the teacher, school policies, and other factors

    I'm in college and we use an online system called Angel. Professors and instructors don't have their own websites but many assignments are done through Angel. Angel is a pretty sucky system though. I wish we used something better.

    It has been a few years since I was playing the education bit and at least some of that was distance learning which kind of necessitated at least some course materials to be online.

    Before that yeah any of the technically inclined would have done it. Methods were typically internal/behind a password system which is a pity as it has reduced the value of searching with site:.edu OR site:ac.uk and typically came in the form of word documents, powerpoint presentations or the occasional PDF. Straight HTML was rarer but happened from time to time.

    All of my professors post at least one of those items you listed. The majority of them use most of your list.

    Generally the older the professor, the less online resources posted.

    No, but I haven't been in school since the 90's. In college everyone had email (students and teachers), but that just went through the school mainframe (eventually we could get on the web, but it was still really early for that). I think in one programming class we could turn in our programs via email (normally we had to turn in a printout and a floppy), but that was pretty much it for online presence of classes.

    Most restrictions are due to copyright of course content (quite often my professors or lecturers have done a lot of research papers or course books, which restrict publishing the contents). On the other hand, our University's internal course system lets the content be locked only to Uni students and personnel.

    Most problem with course exams are the relatively similar questions to course material. Releasing practice exams is basically releasing new course homework/problem sets that are already released weekly for most courses.

    Oh and it's a University of Technology with pretty much 99% continuing at least to Master's level (typical for the Finnish higher education).

    Yeah, all of the teachers at my school are encouraged to use a site called Edmodo. A group works (and almost looks) kinda like a Facebook group (You can post messages to the group, PM the teacher, have group-wide polls, use an event calendar, etc.), with the addition of a couple of school-relevant features (everyone can upload files + attach them to posts, teacher can post assignments and grade them, etc. It even has an achievement system but barely any of the teachers at my school use it). They also have an app so you can view assignments and stuff from your phone.

    Here's a link to the website, but I can't link you to my group page since groups are invite-only :ha:

    My college uses a site called Blackboard to host syllabi, powerpoints, documents, turn in assignments, and conduct quizzes/exams. Its up to the individual teacher to decide how what it is used (or not used) for in each class. In one I'm taking now all the material is on the Testout website and he just copies the text information into word docs for us to look at.

    OP: All I can do is post a link to the main page. Or I can take a screen shot. Just know that my teacher puts this stuff online.
    Mine does too; I don't think that means worksheets, though. My computer teacher does; he puts the assignments on BB so we can look at them just in case we lose the paper handout.


    Oh my god, I love how you mention using floppy discs for storage. I have one just as a souvenir, just to remind me what it was like back then. :)
