Depends on what you want to do.

(1) Looks like it makes it easy to collaborate but it is probably too  
much for *my* students. (Maybe a "light" version?)

(2) You can paste Math Mode LaTeX but I don't know how far that goes:  
I tried a formula involving also a bit of straight LaTeX and it didn't  
like it (But then neither does MathJax). However,

x \xrightarrow{\hspace{5mm}JILL\hspace{5mm}} JILL(x)= \frac{2\sin{x}+5} 

worked fine.
