I have used octave in teaching. The problem I had was that
the students have absolutely no previous exposure to
computers and are not in a position to use a manual.
There was no "text" on octave, so I had to use an elementary
matlab based book. A good text showing the use of octave in
engineering and science context will go a long way in
consolidating octave's use as a teaching tool. Octave is
great for those who know their way around; but for beginning
 students a good text is required.
