Hi.
   
  I am a research associate aln also I teach applied mathematics 
  and mechanics. But I must admit I don't have much experience 
  of teaching a class of students. 
  But, what is bad if the students would download a package
  and use from their computers?
   
  The worst that can happen is to fail to lad the package.
  But if they don't do mistakes how they will learn?

I'll have a look at that, but I'm not keen on using a package that the 
students would have to download and install themselves. (They use 
Mathematica on their own laptops and in computer labs all over campus, 
not just the classrooms maintained by the math department.)
