Things to try with your agent
The Agent Trials world should be in your list of worlds automatically, along with a tutorial world and several sample worlds to help you get started. Please check the version number of your Minecraft: Education Edition (it should read 1.4.0). If you have any issues, please contact support right away so we can get your Agent Trials working again.
Log in to your Minecraft: Education Edition after installing Code Connection and give the Agent Trials a try. This in-game tutorial covers the following topics:
- Going forward
- Moving your agent using turn commands
- Mastering vertical movement
- Putting directional movement together to get the full spectrum
- Teaching the Agent to move and destroy items
- Farming. Why not automate your planting and harvesting needs?
- Collect materials
- Build a simple shelter with your agent
- Start creating in a sandbox area
If you have any suggestions on Classroom mode and how it can be improved post a thread in the “Feature Request” area of the forums with the title “Code Connection Suggestion” (or similar) so we see it right away for consideration.
