So you want each student to have a work area which is "theirs", but
also for them to be able to edit in each other's space if they want?

You should be able to accomplish that simply with page name schemes.
All of the Wiki software out there should support doing that.

MediaWiki should also allow you to set up a separate wiki instance
(hostname, etc) per user if you want.  I'm not sure why you'd need to
do that unless you want each student to have administrator control
over their space and only their space, though.  It would have a lot
more overhead and setup effort.

Do you have a more detailed conceptual application usage document?
