So have I but mainly for classes on repository building. This is
locally called the "building digital libraries" class, whatever that
means ;-). The way I work with Omeka in the course is that I have a
set of Perl scripts. They create a separate Omeka installation
for each students. Separate installation meaning complete PHP code
and separate databases for each student. Students are free to
install whatever modules and themes they wish. There is no
interference with other students.

If I were to do "teach the opac" I would give each student an
installation of Koha. The Debian packaging of Koha allows me to
build several instances of Joha on one set of perl scripts. Each
student just gets a separate mySQL database. Since a lot of things
in Koha can be configured through the database---I am not aware of
Koha themes and modules---it would be sufficient. Just run
koha-create for each student.
