How to Generate References with LaTeX (BibTeX)

How to Generate References with LaTeX (BibTeX)

Another LaTeX video, this time relating to creating a bibliography. This isn't using Overleaf, however the principle is similar. The Overleaf example file has a built in Bibliography example. I have found a video that covers this, so please see the second video below.

There are adverts every so often, but you can just skip these.

Improve your academic writing with Writefull.

Improve your academic writing with Writefull.

Writefull, is a really useful extension to overleaf, that helps you improve your writing. It is designed to be integrated in to Overleaf, so complements really well. From experience, this works in Chrome but I am not sure if there is a specific plug-in for Firefox.

The narrator does seem to be talking rather fast, which makes it harder to follow. I did use the Youtube settings to slow down the speed to 0.75, which sort of improved this. To be fair, I am not sure if the narrators first language is English, so that may account for the speed he is talking. But it is not a barrier to watching the video, once slowed down, or even at normal speed.

Tutorial for writing lab reports in LaTeX and Overleaf

So further to my previous overleaf post. This is a tutorial to show you how to make a simple lab report. It is about an hour long. But seems to cover quite a lot of ground. I am happy to help people with LaTeX, I would recommend using the forum (see links below), you should be able to tag me in with @PaulSutton.

How to Write a Scientific Journal Article Using Overleaf – Academic Writing Tutorial

This is an excellent short video on the advantages of using Overleaf for Academic writing.

There are several abrupt stops for adverts, but the video is well worth watching.

Teaching Resources

As I am hoping to be working as a supplyTeaching Assistant, having resources to help me can be really useful.

Teaching Resources

Alpha blocks are really useful for teaching or helping to teach letter sounds and phonics.

Teaching Resources

More of Alpha blocks.

Teaching Resources

Lots of cards with common words on.

Finally, some resources to help teach Numeracy.

Essay and report writing skills

This is a repost

Hopefully reposting this here, will inspire people.

I completed Essay and report writing skills [3] with OpenLearn [2], earlier this year. This is part of the Open University [1]. In fact, this course mirrors a student tool kit book I have here, also from the OU. It is nice to have a printed and bound version.

Very useful course, lots of useful ideas, pointers to writing good essays and reports. Topics included structure, referencing, quotations,drafting, polishing and letting go. So probably just as applicable in the workplace as it is in the Academic world

I am looking forward to further study.

Course Certificate

The UK government want all adults to spend time learning. To this end have created the skills toolkit [4] to help adults find learning and development courses.

This is a great idea, provided that employers:-

  • Support employees in learning
  • Value any learning an employee undertakes
  • Value the commitment and work put in in order to learn new skills
  • Recognise employee achievements on their CV
  • See potential in their employee(s)

LaTeX and Overleaf – Changing the compiler

A question came up on IRC earlier about Overleaf, LaTeX and compiling to use the \usepackage{arabluatex} package.

I suggested that it is possible to change the compiler to use LuaTeX and made the following video to help others with this
