Is this Amiga video editing equipment in my classroom worth spending any time on at all?

I'm a teacher. The classroom that I teach in has a few Amiga computers that were used for video editing in years past (they have not been used for a while now). (there are also assorted monitors, a panasonic vhs video editing suite and other sundry items attached to this equipment
Is this equipment (pics 1,2,3,4,5
) worth my time to try to get going? The systems power up and I am assuming that they'll both work. The question is, am I going to be able to do anything interesting with them once they are going?
I do have a few PC's with Adobe Premier and Pinnacle Studio that we do video editing with. I also have a Newtek "Tricaster", a pc based broadcast switcher.
Is there anything that the amiga "toasters" will do that I can't do with the new equipment?
Assuming the consensus is that I don't really need this equipment, is it something that I can sell/ebay and get any amount worth my time to package/ship it?
