Storing the student data in both the session and the database, where the database may be modified by the instructor sounds like a recipe for disaster. In my courseware, there is only one copy of the student data and it has synchronized access. Both the student and instructor Threads access the same copy of the data - every now and then this copy is backed up to a disk file.
