Hello from the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy! The ICTP supports science and science education in the developing world, and we got an invite to one of their workshops.
As usual, I learned much more from the workshop than the workshop did from me. I was invited to talk about writeLaTeX and how it makes collaboration easier for scientists and students around the world. But this post is about all the other great stuff at the workshop.
Here we present a collection of five journal article templates pre-loaded into writeLaTeX and ready for immediate editing online
Dr Vincent Knight of the University of Cardiff spent Sunday screencasting a set of 21 introductory videos for his new set of students (the academic year is just starting here in the UK).
We hope these are useful for the wider community - the full set of videos are embedded in this blog post for easy reference.
