So I'm a math teacher and would like my students to get comfortable with this community and to get familiar with this resource. To this end I've daydreamed about assigning them a problem, then posting it here as a question, requiring my students to submit answers.
All of the homework questions I've read have to do with the student who posts a question and receives help through answers. But that's not the situation here. My thinking is that the students can learn a lot by posting answers and then engaging with the community in all the usual ways: receiving feedback, editing their presentation, learning to use $\LaTeX$ in a way that clarifies concepts, &c. &c. &c. So it doesn't seem to run afoul of the homework policies here.
On the other hand, I don't really have a question about "how do I prove this foo is bar?" So I feel like it's a bit of a disingenuous use of the site.
Have any others tried this? Is there guidance on this? Does this strike you as an on-topic type of question to ask?
Some comments suggested local sites, scoped instances of Stacks, &c. My response was:
To address a couple of the comments: either using our native CMS or a localized instance of a Stack would undercut the intent: to get students introduced to and participating in this community. I've got plenty of ways to get them to interact with each other and with me; it's blowing out those walls that I'm looking for, and guiding them through the process of becoming a productive member of an organization that, to their generation, will be as important as an MAA membership was/is to mine.
In other words, the explicit object of this (hypothetical) exercise is to get students' foot in the door here.
