Websites should be navigable for not only users but also search engine bots. Navigability is ensured through proper hyper linking of keywords as anchor texts in the content of various pages of a website. The same holds true for institutional websites in the education niche. Only an experienced web developer in discussion with an on-page SEO analyst can make your website ultra navigable.
If you are offering free notes or study materials online to the potential visitors, the download process should be an easy one.

Otherwise, potential candidates will leave your website out of frustration. That will simply be your loss.
