I *think* I get the question, but to Rasmus' point, could you provide
some examples of what an end product might look like? This would be a
tangible way for you to make the details of your request known. Rather
than base the request in reference to the site link you provided,
something more like:
- We have x number of courses, and each one has y article-style and z
presentation style teaching documents (manuals, tutorials, class
guides, etc.)
- An example of a representative manual is here: url
- An example of a representative presentation is here: url
- Repeat for any other documents you're looking to redo

Then provide a ballpark example of what you're looking to transform
the above into. Perhaps link to a manual/presentation you've found
that you would like to emulate certain characteristics of?

Lastly, a list of deliverables would be nice. For example, "I would like:
- A .emacs that could be shared among all documentation users
- A custom beamer template
- A custom LaTeX article class designed to produce the format above
- etc."

Just some thoughts to help others respond to something more concrete.

I looked around the site at the courseware section as you pointed out.
I think I get what you want, but it would still be helpful to have at
least some of the above for others in order to know what they are
being asked to do. It also helps some of us know what level of
org-mode knowledge would be required to help you. Lastly, what, if
any, compensation is involved.

Good luck in your search!
