Overleaf is a web-based editor for typesetting documents using the LaTeX text typesetting system. Overleaf allows the collaborative creation and editing of documents, including real-time comments and chat function for exchange. Teachers can offer course assignments as templates that can be completed directly online by course participants. Functions such as real-time preview or the integrated WYSIWYG editor ("What you see is what you get") also allow LaTeX laypersons to create and edit documents.

Application scenarios:

  • Creation of teaching materials and course documentation
  • Joint creation and editing of documents
  • Creation of academic documents

Restrictions:

  • An HU account is required
  • Complex documents require LaTeX knowledge
  • No direct integration in HU-Moodle
