    There are many ways of achieving this depending on the requirements, the first question is:

    Are the students accessing the files from other computers or are they logging in to the machine as local users?

    For the former, have a look at NFS (Probably the definitive how to)

    For the later, create a group called students and add all the student users in to that group. Make the folder accessible to that group.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    OK, so they are on remote machines.

    Set the machine with the data on as an NFS server and export the common directory. Set each student machine as an NFS client and mount your exported directory on them.

    The link above will take you through how to do that
