This has been one of my pet projects for years, but I have never found
the time to actually write any of it.

You may be interested in this preliminary outline that I put together
for a series of tutorials (or a textbook) aimed at university students.
It's for, but the topics (and most of the instructional
information) would be applicable to LibreOffice, probably with very few
changes. AFAIK, no one has found time to actually do any of the work to
produce this or similar materials.

Hi, :-)

It sounds like what you're wanting to do is undocumented within the
short life of the LibreOffice community but *needs* to be nurtured by
the LibreOffice community for your needs and for other educational

As one of the documentation team, I'll be pleased to be a specific
liaison point to help you deal easily with the project and get the
support and cooperation you need, and to repatriate the learning and
best practices to the LibreOffice project.

May I suggest that you sign up for our documentation mailing list [1]
and tell us more about your project and what you'd like to develop
with the community?

I teach at a small university, and I'm looking for information.

I've downloaded the documentation for LibreOffice, and it looks very, very good.

We're considering not joining the herd, we're considering teaching Writer, Calc, and Base, 
instead of MS Office, and we'd like to consider using the documentation as a base document.

Question: Has anyone written a textbook, using the documentation as a foundation, which would 
give additional information, practice problems, and the like?
