I was already going to be doing GitHub for assignments: lets students proceed at their own pace, plus ease them into best practices in research (tracking changes, commenting, testing code) and, eventually, software (unit testing of code, package structure, etc.). Just saw a post about GitHub Classroom which looks like it might work well: lets students fork the exercises and develop it on their own. Not sure yet about doing checking with TravisCI (some of the checks will be rather slow), but considering it.
