Have students turn in their assignments in Org mode format. 


See sec-2.3

| I’m going to try an experiment in this course. I would like you to
| submit your papers to me as plain text, not in a document format like MS
| Word (.doc, .docx), OpenDocument Text (.odt), RTF, or HTML. You are
| welcome to useWord, OpenOffice, or another document editor to write your
| papers, but please export your paper from these programs as plain text,
| formatted according to the guidelines below.1
| There are several reasons for this. One, I don’t want to require you to
| use any particular software to write your papers; you can edit plain
| text using a wide variety of programs on any platform. Two, I actually
| find the papers in the usual 12 point Times New Roman double-spaced
| format pretty difficult to read and work with. By submitting your papers
| in plain text, you’re making it easier for me to compile them into a
| format that prefer to work with, which means I’ll have more time to
| dedicate to giving you helpful feedback.
| In case you’re wondering: these guidelines are a subset of the
| formatting rules of Org mode for GNU Emacs (http://orgmode.org). I’m
| going to use Org mode to compile your papers using the LATEX
| typesetting system. If you want, you can use any formatting compatible
| with Org mode, but you’re not required to learn it.
