Here’s a handy resource for remote learning with Minecraft: Education Edition! The Multiplayer Game Guide can help you manage distance learning with your students at home, featuring requirements, setup guidance, and troubleshooting.
Whether you’re playing together in class or remotely from home, hosting multiplayer games is a great way to encourage collaboration, communication, and problem-solving as students work together on projects in a shared Minecraft world.
Minecraft: Education Edition offers multiplayer functions that connect players through picture-based join codes so they can play together at the same time in the same Minecraft world. Multiplayer games in Minecraft: Education Edition can take place between users within the same Office 365 Education tenant. For most users, this means the part of your
email address after the “@” symbol matches that of the other players.
A single multiplayer game can host a maximum of 30 players and can connect players across all supported platforms. All players will need to be running the same version of Minecraft: Education Edition to be able to host and join worlds together.
