* Dear Venkatesh Choppella: Thanks for the notes on teaching OrgMode etc.:
While reviewing your class notes and emails to your class about OrgMode and
TeX/LaTeX I came across your suggestion to students to play with:

http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html

** Detexify can be useful; but, this may give your students more
traction/uses:

http://webdemo.visionobjects.com/equation.html

---which not only suggests an equivalent TeX/LaTeX; it provides a MathML
suggestion as well.

*** Disclaimer: I have no relations to visionobjects.com that I know of
(but the example site looks free to play with at least).
