[Edu-sig] Python Installation with PyLab?

So, I have iPython installed on my machine, because I did the EPD install.
The notebook worked fine in Chrome...so am I to understand that it's using my local machine as an iPython server and just using the browser as the interface?
How would this work with a classroom of students? Would they still all have to install EPD, or could they all run off of my server?

Plus, anyone wanting to use an iPad is stuck. So, installing EPD is option 1, but has those limitations. Thoughts?
