If some of your students are having problems with Gnome because they can't afford to upgrade their hardware suggest that they do some research, find an alternative DE that their current configuration can handle and migrate to it. If any of them seem reluctant to change, the words "extra credit" should be all that's needed. Think of it as a form of Pons Asinorim. Being a bit of a BOFH, my attitude is that those who can't afford to upgrade and won't put in the work to find a Linux desktop that works for them deserve what they get.
Unfortunately after GNOME 3, many of them have a problems, especially
hardware issues, to run latest Fedora versions. Almost half of them give
up from Linux because hardware incompatibility or lack of technical
skills to make GUI usable and user friendly.
Just for the record, my mobo is maxed out at 1GB RAM, although the CPU could handle twice that. I don't even want to think about how slow Gnome 3 would be, which is just one of the reasons I'm using Xfce. And, I'm not in the position to upgrade because of limited income (Social Security) and several debts to be paid off first.
