Are you looking to convert an existing e-course into an eBook? Then, consider using LaTeX. Did you know that LaTeX can also be used to create professionally formatted documents like eBooks as well as articles? Well, it is very powerful but also a bit intimidating, that’s why we believe it has to be taught in a certain way.
At e-course alley, we firmly believe that we learn best when we have a goal to work towards or a project to complete. Therefore, I have taken this learn-by-doing, project-based approach to teaching you how to use Overleaf and to show you how it can make LaTeX coding less intimidating.
