I came across this the other day, you can run jupyter notebooks on azure for 
free if you have a Microsoft account (free to set up)

https://notebooks.azure.com/

might be quite useful for teaching

Thanks Titus,

Do you have an estimate of what the total AWS cost was for the session? (To 
help us convince sources of financial support…)

Cheers,

Hi all,

I put this together for a tutorial last week, and I have to say it went 
amazingly smoothly:

https://github.com/mblmicdiv/course2017/blob/master/exercises/sourmash-setup.md

Briefly,

* I started a big Amazon machine;
* I installed Docker and built a custom image containing my software of 
interest;
* I ran multiple containers, one connected to port 8000, one on 8001, etc. and 
gave each student a different port;
* students could connect in and use the Terminal program in Jupyter to execute 
commands, and could upload/download files via the Jupyter console interface;
* in theory I could have used notebooks too, but for this I didn’t have need.

I am aware that JupyterHub can probably do all of this including manage the 
containers, but I’m still a bit shy of diving into that; this was fairly 
straightforward, gave me disposable containers that were isolated for each 
individual student, and worked almost flawlessly.  Should be easy to do with 
RStudio too.

Other write-ups to do similar things with your favorite setup would be great!

best,

p.s. the actual tutorial that students ran was here:
