I'm in the process of converting some lecture notes into TeX format, however I've run into a slight problem. Although the report document class is ideal for what I'm doing (a 100 page two-column document with chapters, sections and subsections), I need to modify the table of contents and chapter headings to display the chapters in terms of lectures instead of chapters.

Chapter 1:

Title of the First Lecture

It should say:

Lecture 1:

Title of the First Lecture

1 Title of the First Lecture

It should have:

Lecture 1 Title of the First Lecture

I'm looking for the cleanest and simplest way possible of doing this.

Perhaps this post will help you: How to change the name of document elements like "Figure", "Contents", "Bibliography" etc.?. If it does, please tell us. `:-)` –  hpesoj626 Feb 13 '13 at 4:41
For the second part, Table of Contents with Chapter provides a solution using `titletoc`, while How to tweak the LOF and LOT without using any packages? provides a means without using packages. –  Werner Feb 13 '13 at 6:01
