SageMathCloud is a cloud-based service that provides infrastructure and services that are useful for running courses based on Jupyter Notebooks. It is used for teaching by Universities around the world.
Basic access, without internet access, is free; however, it is well-worth paying for premium access if you are going to support a class full of students or need internet access. Paying users get more resources and support - vital if you are to rely on it for paying students.
