One of my duties as assistant teacher at the University of British Columbia is to answers questions in the discussion boards of a few Earth Sciences first year courses.

Some of the questions are not in ESSE and are worth of been here. Therefore I wonder: Would it be recommended/desirable/good for me to "export" those questions with my answers to SE for the benefit of a wider community?

Yes, but:

  • They should be good questions.
  • The copyright should be compatible with CC BY-SA 3.0 and you need to respect any other requirements stated by the source. The answer may be yours, but the question is not.

    $\begingroup$ Good, and yes. Those are reasonable requirements and shouldn't be a problem. Can the "community" be used to post questions? I feel that it is not fair for me to post the question. Is there a workaround for that? $\endgroup$ – Camilo Rada Mar 20 '18 at 15:07

    $\begingroup$ @CamiloRada You can mark the question as community wiki; in that case nobody will get reputation from votes on the question, nor of any answer. I'm not sure if there is a way to get reputation on the answers but not on the question. $\endgroup$ – gerrit Mar 20 '18 at 16:55

    $\begingroup$ I see. And do you think that would be more desirable than creating a fake user for this propose? The lack of reputation will not encourage others to post an alternative or better answers than mine. $\endgroup$ – Camilo Rada Mar 20 '18 at 17:57

    $\begingroup$ @CamiloRada A fake user is not a great idea. You could post it under your own (clearly stating in the question where it's from), then give away the gained reputation to "charity" in the form of a bounty to award exceptional answers (perhaps in particular by new or low-rep users). Meanwhile you can lobby Stack Exchange to enable CW questions with non-CW answers ;-) (See this post on Meta Stack Exchange) $\endgroup$ – gerrit Mar 20 '18 at 18:37
  • $\begingroup$ OK, make sense. $\endgroup$ – Camilo Rada Mar 20 '18 at 18:38
  • $\begingroup$ I posted a recent one, let's see how it goes. I will have to dig for good old ones. $\endgroup$ – Camilo Rada Mar 20 '18 at 22:53
