MinecraftEdu Classrom Server Hosting recently exited Beta. Anyone using MinecraftEdu can now get one of our cloud servers! Please visit the Beta Exit FAQ for a list of changes and frequently asked questions.
How does this work?
When you use MinecraftEdu in your classroom without using our Hosting Service, one computer runs a copy of the MinecraftEdu Server Software, and the other computers run the MinecraftEdu Client software. The computers that are running the MinecraftEdu Client software all connect to the computer that is running the MinecraftEdu Server software, so that students and instructors can play and learn together.
When you use the Hosting Service, TeacherGaming operates the MinecraftEdu Server software for you, in the "cloud." The computers in your classroom run the MinecraftEdu Client software, and connect to the Hosting Service over the internet.
Because both parts of the service are equally as important, the articles related to the Hosting Service are in two groups.
- Connecting to the Hosting Service
- Hosting Edition Client
- Configuring your Client for Proxy
- Port Information
- Updating the Hosting Client
The Server Control Panel allows you to manage many of the tasks associated with a server, institution and users. Below are the articles relating to specific sections of the Server Control Panel.
