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 to SageMathcloud is free but, if you want your proejcts to be able to access the internet and have a more perfromant user-experience, we suggest you upgrade to a paid-for plan. Paying users get more resources and support - vital if you are to rely on it for paying students. Details of SageMathCloud's pricing plans are available at https://cloud.sagemath.com/policies/pricing.html
