“A fantastic course from beginning to end. Franziska is amazing. I have attended hundreds of courses over the years, this is by far the best. The resources were very detailed with excellent tasks that built up knowledge and experience in clear steps. The sessions were a great balance of information, demonstration and practice. I didn’t want it to end.”

Introduction to LaTeX

Course Description:
Learn how to create and customize your own documents using the free, multi-platform LaTeX typesetting system with the Texmaker editor on Windows!
This course will introduce you to LaTeX, a document preparation system most commonly used in academia for technical and scientific documents. However, LaTeX can be used in any field as a free, quick, and easy (after some practice) alternative to create stable, high-quality, and professional looking documents. LaTeX is highly recommended if you want to focus more on content rather than worry about the details of the layout.
In this course, you will learn how to generate and structure simple documents as well as tailor them to your specific needs.

Topics:
Typesetting with LaTeX, Creating your first Document, Document Structure, Special Pages, Text Formatting, Maths, Lists, Tables, Figures
(Optional: Packages, Bibliographies, Layout, Headers & Footers, Large Documents)
