[IPython-dev] IPython for Education

I was thinking about that. But my understanding is that when multiple people are logged into the same IPython server, this might cause problems for the server. Particularly if they are using the same notebook, it seems like the kernel could easily get into an inconsistent state. Were you imagining that the students would each be using their own notebook but hosted on a single server? Or are there ways to have multiple users working on the same notebook without it causing problems?

I think you are right that there are many possibilities for using
IPython in the classroom. I think many of these could be explored more
easily if the students were logged in via an IPython server... at
least that is where I will be concentrating my explorations this year.
I could imagine: sharing, commenting, grading, hand-in methods,
testing, quizzes, and clicker-style anonymous polling ("are we all at
the same place? ready to move on?"), etc. It would be great to make a
list of such feature ideas, and prioritize....
