I try to call the halacha hotline, but right now I cant get through.

I wanted to know if anyone had this situation before.

I am teaching over pesach and need to post work online.
I am obviously TAKING OFF THURS FRI and NEXT WED THURS, but
I am expected to post work.

I can schedule it now to post on yomtov, but I'm wondering if it is prohibited.

Usually when I take off, I leave work in the building which the students do on yom tov, so is this different?
Here, I would be leaving work, but have it posted on yom tov.

I'm thinking this is similar to leaving a crock pot or ac on as we schedule it to go on/off before yom tov but it is going on/off on yom tov?????

Anyone has experience with this???

Obviously I'm no dayan, but I don't think it's a problem. It should be no different than using a Shabbos timer. But AYLOR.

Can you avoid the issue by posting it now with instructions to do it on Thursday and Friday?

As long as you don't have possibly Jewish students for whom it might be maaris ayin, its probably no different if you were to put something in the mail and have it arrive on yom tov. If you might have such students, then maybe put a disclaimer saying "this was put up on x date, I am not available for questions until Sunday's date"

Putting something in the mail to arrive on Shabbos or YT, actually has several halachic concerns.

OP- you can post the things before YT begins ?
If not I would suggest reaching out to your LOR.
