I've prepared two portable classroom servers for use in teaching.

The server runs on a micro computer (BeagleBone Black: and hosts a Linux system with preconfigured users and exercise files. The server also hosts a webserver for a course web page.

Another feature is that it has its' own private wifi network. The main advantage is that students can practice logging in to a remote unix environment and execute commands, do file transfer etc. And this without the administrative hassle of finding an existing linux system that will temporarily host a number of student accounts. From experience, it also takes a bit off the edge of logging in to a "real" server (such as UPPMAX) - a daunting task for many first-time users of a terminal.
