Based on #students generate N random-string sub-domains assigned in their
course handout.  You can either pre-delegate those or let them delegate
the named domain, based on your requirements.  Start with a fresh config
and newly generated set of sub-domains each quarter.  Just a thought if
you want to go this route and avoid mis-use.
