If I am creating a website where different teachers will be able to upload and download lesson plans how do i make this available?

For uploads see tutorials on forms, you can add an upload field which allows the teacher to browse their PC for what ever they want to upload.

For downloads use Blueftp to transfer 'whatever' to the server. If its a pdf for eg called document.pdf, when you transfer it the link to it will be http://www.mysite.com/document.pdf That link will take the teacher straight to that document. If you want a download dialogue box come up, zip the document and transfer that. The url will be something like http://www.mysite.com/document.zip

Hope this helps
