Learning Formats for Creating Documents

LaTeX and Microsoft Word are the two most commonly used tools for writing scientific papers. Both offer numerous options for giving your document a professional layout.

  • How does word processing differ between Word and LaTeX?
  • Where can I find TU corporate design templates?
  • How do I create a well-structured document?
  • Which functions will help me with scientific writing?

Find out the answers to these and other questions in our workshops, where you can apply your new knowledge directly to practical examples.

The PowerPoint presentations from the courses are available on OpenLearnWare. Self-study courses with the same content are available for many workshops in Moodle.

Our Coffee Lectures ans and various ULB tutorial videos provide a brief introduction to the topic.
