You may want to contact Joseph Wright at the UK TeX user group as they
do introductory courses on LaTeX, for some pointers.  The website below
gives details on what the course covers so perhaps if your course did
the same but using LyX and you are able to collaborate it would be a
useful for people going from one to the other or using both,

 bibliography and fancier features) would be of enormous help.

 At the moment I plan to start with the 'Help  Documentation' in
 preparing my tutorial. Perhaps some of you have already passed through
 this experience and have some materials readily available? If so,
 please post them here.

You may want to contact Joseph Wright at the UK TeX user group as they
do introductory courses on LaTeX, for some pointers.  The website below
gives details on what the course covers so perhaps if your course did
the same but using LyX and you are able to collaborate it would be a
useful for people going from one to the other or using both,

Hope this helps

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

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...
