Minecraft: Education Edition early access is here! And it’s free.

One of the most common requests from educators is the ability for students to collaborate together to build projects and solve problems.

With Minecraft: Education Edition, an entire classroom of up to 30 students can play in a world together without a separate server required.  Or, students can work together in pairs or groups simply by joining their classmates’ worlds.

Today, we are excited to announce the release of Minecraft: Education Edition early access for educators around the world.  The early access version of Minecraft: Education Edition gives educators a chance to install and try an early version of the product for free.
