I have no experience in teaching but I gave a presentation on Beamer two years ago.

Using beamerarticle works quite well as long as you keep some things in mind:

You can simply write the article text in between frames by using:


But beware, to set anything presentation related, it now has to be included with

  \usetheme{CambridgeUS}		% rot
  % Enable or disable as you wish
  %\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}

You can have frames that are only in the presentation, but not in article:

    %\tableofcontents[currentsection] % nur aktuelle Section

Avoid the columns environment in beamer, there is no equivalent in article.

beamerarticle works fine with article and scrartcl, I couldn’t get it to work with tufte-handout.
If you want to try, use the [noxcolor] option for beamerarticle.
