How long should it be? A year ago I had one hour workshop on LyX in my
department, and I started with very short into on LaTeX and "in what scene
LyX is different from word", and then about 40 minutes of demonstration of
what can I do and how can I do that.

If there is nothing better, I can translate my tutorial to English (few
beamer-slides, and 3 pages of "do that in order to achieve this..." list...
