Hello Mehmet,

I'm not entirely sure if I understand what is the goal but if you're 
talking about computer labs:
One option would be using vnc sessions (tightvnc e.g.), so students can 
watch lessons on their own terminals. It’s possible to set view only 
sessions also. It sounds feasible that all command line work being done 
from the virtual X session as well.
It’s also possible to make vnc sessions running from jails (for 
testing/disposable jails e.g.). With stuff like this you don’t even need 
to worry about extra hardware. In fact it can be all done from a 
headless server.

Well sorry if this have nothing to do about your intents, just some option.
