Nitrous (https://www.nitrous.io/) and that’s a development platform.

The basic account is free and it gives you access to a linux ”shell”, which has several pre-installed compilers and interpreters (gcc, java, php, python …) and has an IDE that can be used via browser.

It has some nice features for collaborative work, such as chat and allows multiple people to view/ edit the same source file simultaneously.

Also has the advantage of having access to the code anywhere, which allows editing in class and revise easily at home, without having to walk to copy files via email.
