Or just use Markdown and skip the Latex (if you don't need complex
things like equations). I wrote my last book in Markdown, only
converting to the Word format the publisher required at the very
end before submitting each chapter.

I use HTML/CSS/Javascript for slides for talks. I don't know how
interactive you want to make these meetings, but if there's room for
discussions of different formats, I could show how that works.
I like using HTML because it means I can share my slides as
interactive web pages people can view in any browser, and because
anything I learn about CSS or JavaScript to make better slides is
knowledge I can also use for regular websites.
