Anyway, IMHO raw LaTeX is far better comparing to MathQuill. No doubt for mathematicians. But I teach non-mathematicians and especially these students work frequently with various software and need to enter formula there. LaTeX is common math notation and has support on all major platforms (Wikipedia, WordPress and WWW in general, markdown with all successors such as Rmarkdown, MS Word, regular LaTeX, Matlab live editor, ...) and it does not make any sense to omit the skills to write some math in scientific courses. I think that replacing LaTeX notation with a plugin is in general not good idea.
