With our new teaching account you can quickly and easily send out assignments to your students, which they can complete online and submit back to you with a single click.

Here we present a visual five-step guide to getting set up with a teaching account and using the integrated tools to create, distribute and collect your course assignments. We finish with a short video demonstration of all the features in action.

By John Hammersley

We're delighted to announce that as of today you can now publish your Overleaf projects directly to figshare!

This is part of our drive to help improve open science and open access to research; figshare is designed to allow researchers and students to publish all of their research outputs in an easily citable, sharable and discoverable manner.

You can now upload larger files - we've lifted the document limits!

Using writeLaTeX is now even easier! We've increased the MB upload limits on ALL your documents to allow you to upload large files. We've also created a single measure of your usage - your writeLaTeX storage quota. To get more space, all you need to do is invite people - you'll both get a bonus when they sign up!

Invite your friends, get free space!

It's as easy as that! You can get up to 1GB for free simply by inviting your friends & colleagues!
