Each student will need a copy of minecraft. If they already have minecraft installed, they just need to activate version 1.8.8 as the video demonstrates.
If your students don't have a copy of minecraft yet, they can purchase it here and download the official launcher. Alternatively, as our servers do not require authentication, you can use our launcher (if a student has python installed).

After purchasing the Cloud9 Education for $1, you will need to go to the Team Invite page, and invite each student via email (requires students have an email account). This will send them a link to signup with Cloud9 for free without needing a credit card.

Start with our open source repo as the base, and host it locally or with a minecraft server host!
This video demonstrates how the pieces connect together, and walks through the student experience in executing code on your minecraft world for the first time!
