Create New World
1. Select both of the options listed under the World Settings section.
2. Click Start Server with New World.

You can find the servers in the upper right corner.


Student - Getting On The Server


Double click the launcher.

Click Multiplayer.


The first time they launch MinecraftEdu there won't be any servers listed.
Click Add server.


Have the students name the server. It is recommended to have the server name related to the project they are working on. This makes it easier in the future when you have multiple servers they can pick from.
Enter the server address.
Click Done.


Select the server.
Click Join Server.
Note - if the server does not have a green check by it something went wrong.
1. Is the server running on the teacher laptop?
2. The students might have entered the server address incorrectly.
