A Suite of Typesetting Tools for the Web-Enhanced Classroom

By Peter G. Andrews, Duane M. Broline, William A. Slough and Nancy K. Van Cleave

Abstract

In ever increasing numbers, schools and businesses are turning to open source solutions in their quest for stable computing environments and technology tools requiring minimal maintenance and cost. Technical typesetting, needed for producing attractive and accurate documents containing mathematical formulas, requires powerful formatting tools. In addition, classroom presentations and web-based materials can be enhanced with graphics. For online publishing, it is preferable to produce generic solutions which are not restricted to a single platform. We present an array of tools which work in conjunction with L ATEX and provide the ability to do screen capture, create drawings, import graphics, produce presentation slides, and PDF or HTML documents. URLs where the software can be downloaded are included
