I can recommend our own university's Office for Copyright that offers a lot
of online support
as well as classroom tutorials.  I've attended one of these and it was
small and quite focussed.  Recommended.

The short version is this: place two statements on all materials you

   1. a copyright statement by the person who created the materials (e.g.,
   "(C) Patricia Sauthoff, 2020")
   2. a license stating the terms under which you, as (C) holder, would
   like your materials to be shared.  The best source for such a license is
   the Creativecommons.org, where several options are explained clearly (click
   "share your work" and then follow the prompts).
   A commonly used and recommended license is the "BY-SA
   <https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/>" one, which means
   anyone copying your stuff must acknowledge that it's yours and anything
   they do with it must also be shared under the same BY-SA terms.
