I am working through the past exam papers available for my course. I am then making them available for collaboration using Google Docs.

However, for maths heavy material, the Google Docs equation editor sucks. In fact the MathJaX support on Mathematics here on Stack Exchange is much better.

I am looking for an on-line editor for equation heavy documents that supports collaboration and sharing, and supports LaTeX.

Notes: I am currently reviewing the solutions suggested here; http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Collaborative_Writing_of_LaTeX_Documents

Google Docs is actually quite good. If they just supported a keyboard short-cut for inserting an equation, and had some sensible text in equation selection behaviour.

I tried latexlab.org, but it's not a WYSIWYG editor; just an online IDE for LaTeX really (unless I missed something).

zoho documents is another service I might look at.

  • Also, it is unclear whether you are the teacher or a student. The [homework] tag is a sort of meta-tag to allow people reading to know that the content came from a homework assignment. Perhaps [education] (or a related tag) would fit better.

  • maybe a revision tag should be created then.

  • Probably you would like write equations by hand (mouse)? You could use TexTablet, which builds on Microsoft's Math Input Panel Commented Sep 29, 2011 at 20:42
