The MinecraftEdu Custom Mod

Playing Minecraft with students in a classroom setting is an amazing experience. However, the barrier to entry used to be quite high. To get the most out of the game, you needed to have a strong technical background, be comfortable running servers, and be willing to troubleshoot problems at any given moment. These challenges could be insurmountable for many teachers. We set out to change this!

The MinecraftEdu custom mod makes it easy to get the game running smoothly and have your students playing together in no time. Plus, we've included a dream wishlist of features that directly impact your ability to teach your lessons with the game.

Please remember that MinecraftEdu Custom Mod is an addon and will require Minecraft game license(s) in order to play. 

Available for Mac, Windows, and Linux!
