Dr Trefor Bazett via YouTube


In this video I'll talk about all the major things needed to write a thesis using LaTeX, a markup language that is great for displaying any content with formulas. We'll start with the title page, abstract, dedication, acknowledgement. I'll show how to separate out chapter into different files, table of contents, manage appendices, figures, and bibliographies, cite reference, use footnotes, and adjust the margins of your document using the geometry package.

    Easy instructions and simple to follow along.

    To those who don't want to use Overleaf and instead want something that you can install in your PC, you could look into Texmaker. It has the same interface as Overleaf and it is quite cool and open source.

    It was a good course. The teaching style of the teacher was easy to understand. I would recommend taking this course. In fact, I would take all courses of this instructor.
