Re: Professor - New to TortoiseSVN (and limited resources)

If the application your students are working on is of any value to the
community (and 99% of them are), you can use SourceForge to store your code
(of course this means GPL licensing and such).
Otherwise you can set up a repository on pretty much any Linux machine, if
you're worried about losing information, make sure you back it up regularly.
From what you describe, there is no need to use a distributed version
control system.
