The lesson was on the french wikipedia. I was thinking that it was account specific
because the first time half of the new accounts had no VE, it looks like a random issue,
but yesterday it was only one for 9 account created.
Actually I haven't check the browser used, as they all use the same type of computer,
I've done the assumption that it wasn't hardware or software dependent. Bbut now
that you mention that, I remember that the students were using chrome, firefox and
explorer, next tuesday I will take care that they all use chrome or firefox.
I use this email for mailing list only.

In our new education program with youngs in scholar difficulties, we have
the problem that only half of the new accounts have the visual editor
activated, it's quite annoying to have two teach two way of editing.
Is this because of the browser they are using, the wiki they are trying to
edit on, or specific to their account? Which wiki are you talking about
this happening on?
There was a configuration that we used in June for just over a week to A/B
test VisualEditor, but that code is no longer around, so this should not be
However, users of Internet Explorer and some marginal or old browsers
cannot use VisualEditor yet as we have not been able to get it to work
there, which may explain the issue?
