The efficient academic google group has a thread on a really interesting problem. Any hack addressing this has a high chance of saving several hours per week for those of you who teach.
Given lecture material has three components:
- Slides for digital projection (preferable PDFs rather than PowerPoint or Keynote)
- Lecture notes to support what I need to say and remember
- Lecture handout
I regularly update all three, but I am finding keeping all three in sync to be a bit tedious.
I’m not sure what the solution is, but what I am visualising is some sort of single document, where you write the lecture handout. I could then update this with new information between presenting the lecture.
If you have a solution, drop by and post it there (or here!).
