How about preparing a virtual machine that participants can run on their own hardware?

* free
* fewer security concerns
* no need for authentication
* easy to prepare
* participants can continue studying as long as they want

* a laptop with decent hardware (64-bit?, sufficient RAM) is required
* requires a bit more setup time

Simple challenges could be prepared in (ephemeral) containers using Docker, but I think that most (real-world) challenges would require a full Linux environment. All challenges can be prepared in the same virtual machine, and snapshots can be used to roll back to the start state when necessary.

I have half-a-dozen challenges lying around in my archives I could
contribute. And by "contribute" I mean write the readme/question file and
prepare the necessary materials like data files.

Sounds good!  I would be happy to help out as well!
