Dear All,

I am happy to inform you that through Spoken Tutorial based SELF 
workshops, we have provided LaTeX training to more than 40,000 students 
and teachers in many colleges across India.  This has been achieved 
through about 1,000 workshops.

The details of the above are available at 
Through this link, you can identify the workshops that have taken place 
in your state, city, college and so on, including the names of local 
workshop organisers.  It is interesting that 50% of this training has 
taken place in this year alone.

We have received some testimonials on the efficacy of this approach: In 
http://spoken-tutorial.org/testimonials/, Prof. Chitra Desai says that 
she now uses LaTeX for everything, including writing letters, IEEE 
papers, and so on.  We have also heard of some colleges making LaTeX 
mandatory for their thesis writing, after undergoing our training.
