From my point of view I would highly suggest to use the stable version
GRASS 6.0 or even the shortly upcoming version 6.0.1.
You students should definitly have a look at the new vector features in
Furthermore nearly all raster-modules are ported to GRASS 6.

GDF Hannover bR  offers trainig cources and tutorials  as well,
currently only in german language. A english translation is ready
translated and needs only some "polishing".
Again, as other posters already mentioned the book Neteler/Mitasova
/ is excellent as a GRASS reference book.

I am not quite sure what you mean. If you are talking about users on a
single system, it is good to have single users on one maschine.
If you are talking about a distributed data-basis (e.g. on a NFS-mount)
you should create seperate mapsets for seperate users.
Hope this helps
