First, we need a way for the teacher to make that request. Perhaps we 
need something on the SugarLabs web site that steers a user to a support 

Second, explain how to do this. It is very simple if the user has access 
to the internet (go to ASLO, click on download, and the Browse activity 
installs it).
Generally browsers will download mime_types where immediate rendering is 
not available such as .xo bundles. So a user can download the xo bundle, 
copy it to a usb stick, and then install using sugar-install-bundle.The 
schoolserver provides the ability to use Browse to install activities 
from links to the bundles.

This is the advantage of being specific. It enables specific proposals 
to deal  with the issue effectively and appropriately.
