I recommend getting a Canon or Sony with a removable flash drive, an HDMI
connection and maybe a Firewire.
I like Canon HF20 and HF200 models.  The next step up is to get a
'professional camera', however the HF20 and HF200 have more features and
power that many pro cameras and the boot allows you to extend capabilities.

Get a good tripod and a good external mike.  Most onboard video camera mikes
do not work very well in the real world.

Windows LifeCam is a great 720p webcam.

Use Adobe Premier for Video Editing if you can afford.  There are many
tutorials available and the knowledge gained by your students would transfer
to the workplace.

Use Vidblaster <http://vidblaster.com/> as a platform.  Engage Vimeo and
Youtube and Livestream accounts.
