Share a password without really sharing a password...

I'm looking to arrange a particular password setup with several unpaid staffers in my office.
Here's the arrangement: 5-10 folks each day access one or more of ten online accounts that we communally use. I want to ut able to easily distribute the passwords and have the users be able to employ them without ever being able to see what it is.

I want to find a system that look like this:
-For each user, they need me to enter a master password at the beginning of the day.
-They can then have the functionality of the passwords (so they can access any of the 10 or so websites they need to reach), but (here's the biggie) cannot delve into any settings and be able to see the password itself. E.g., no matter how much digging in the settings, all they would ever be able to see are asterisks.
-I am able to distribute updated passwords without manually entering them for each system.
Currently, I distribute a keepass file and log each user in at the beginning of the day, but cannot ensure that the user doesn't burrow into the settings and see or export the passwords.
Any thoughts on how I could give them this functionality without allowing them to ever see the passwords themselves?
Thank you in advance for the thoughts and any help. This is a wonderful community.
