    When you say "within the same Office 365 Education tenant", do you mean the same email domain. Had a few issues with my students trying to connect today.

    Olá, não existe a possibilidade de conectar mais de 30 alunos por mundo?

    Para meu projeto preciso que cada sala tenha 1 mundo, porém tenho mais de 35 alunos por classe.

    Aguardo retorno.

    Obrigada !

    I can only have one person join my world but for my club I need about 10 people to join because we will make a castle. Al, the people are on iPads so I don’t know if that effects it.

    If you try to connect from different places and networks, if you're the host you need to share your public IP instead of the internal one ! You can get it quite easily with www.myip.com for example.

    I don't think the article mention this information clearly enough. Apart from this, it's a great resource !

    I have today very successfully and easily connected over MCEE with educators in our tenancy and teachers are connecting with kids! YAY! Given the dependency on online learning ahead of us I really think this connectivity is vital. It's not just kids accessing learning but having some level of sociability and keeping the company of other young people. It's important for their personal well being.
    FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THEY WORK WELL!

    When you use your Public IP, you need to make sure your router has the correct ports open so Minecraft can be visible to the students.  I believe the port number is 19132, but hopefully someone corrects me.  I will wait until Microsoft will pony up and get some hosted server that educators can use.  I am not opening my IP to anyone. Its too dangerous

    We are attempting to use the Group Play features of Minecraft Education Edition and are getting very inconsistent results while implementing the same procedures. At one point this week in the morning when we were testing the platform we were able to join each other's games. Later in the day, when the kids came on, we were no longer able to join each other's games. The next morning we attempted testing again and could not join each other's game. Nothing had changed on our end. Can you help shed some light on this? Are there hosting issues on your end that are being worked on? Does it matter whether it is a faculty account or a student account that is doing the hosting? Thanks for your help.

    We are having the same issues as Robert. Tuesday one of my students hosted a game and we were all able to join his game from our individual homes. Today that same student hosted a world and none of us could connect. Another tried to host a world and we were again unable to connect. 

    Both students who hosted a world shared their IP addresses and Port numbers and they both had the correct Port Number so that was not the issue. And we are all using v1.12.60.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the hosting is doing this:

    1 - Hosted locally by the user

    2 - Shared via Public IP to "Outside" users

    3 - Using port 19132

    4 - Also insure that your security software allows Minecraft to function inside and outside the network

    If so, then people need to make sure that port is always open (or only when you want to play Minecraft) on their router

    My solution would see if Microsoft can use the same technology that they use for their Minecraft Realms (which my daughter and I use personally) and put the Minecraft Educational Edition code on those servers.  I only pay about $8 a month but the only issue is total number of students connected (I believe its only 10 total at a time, but I am sure they can increase it in their settings). These realms are great and always on so people can work on them whenever.  I would have so many lessons come out of this if that would occur.

    This is only a suggestion, but could this be possible?  I just got word from my state (CA) that we will not be going back to school until August and Minecraft was such a great tool to stay connected with my student.

    I am new to Minecraft EDU.  How do the students log in? Do they need special accounts or can they just use their own Minecraft accounts?

    I'm very new and green to MC, but have a question about "single multiplayer games can host a maximum of 30 players". Does this mean that there can only be 30 people in the world at a time and they can rotate through as users leave?

     

    My idea was to plan an open flat world and have different building challenges with specific parameters they need to comply with. But was thinking of opening it up to the whole school. Would I need to create  "classroom" worlds and host them individually?

    Do you need to be actively in the world for others to join?

    I spent about an hour going through all of the troubleshooting instructions and doing each one individually and had my cousin do the same thing over the phone. All computers met the criteria. When trying to join, it would even display my name asking if this was the world that I was trying to join, but loaded for about 15 seconds and said "unable to connect to world" each time.

    Thanks for your feedback - the Minecraft: Education Edition multiplayer scenario was optimized for use in the classroom on the same network.  With so many students and teachers trying out the remote learning scenario over the past few months we've learned a lot about the conditions where users are successful and where they are running into challenges.  Take a look at our new Multiplayer Troubleshooting post for more info:  https://minecrafteducation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360061711252

    Generally,we see the most success when the the host is able to open port 19132.

    it seems you can ignore the ip address bit. a test account connected (but failed) to a remote hosted game using just the icons book,agent,agent,agent. 

    we are on the same tenant, it saw the remote game and who was hosting it but ultimately failed to connect.  Not sure what to do, my router has upnp enabled. 

    still no exchange of ip addresses was needed.

    Dear Kyle M,


    Whenever I open minecraft education edition, it suddenly keeps closing itself.

    How do I actually make it open?

    Hello. My friend and I both use office 365, the same things, and all. He hosted a world called "multiplayer," and it worked. But we want it to be "our" world, together. Is there a way for me to get on the world when I want to without him? For example, the world is called "multiplayer." When he goes to his worlds, he has it there. When I go to my worlds, it's not. We both want to be able to get at any time so that it would be both of ours. Please answer, it is inconvenient to get kicked from the server any time he logs off. Thank you for listening.

    Tyna,

    The world is physically on his computer.  In order for you both to be able to play on it, you will need to have it reside on a server somewhere.  Microsoft has many hosting sites where you can purchase a server to play on but I don't think there are any that have Education edition.

    Like in my house, we use Realms so my daughter and her friends can play on the same server and on any device.

    You "might" be able to use a shared cloud storage and upload and download the world folder prior to you playing and after you're done, but that might be cumbersome (actually it would be).

    We will see if anyone has a better solution

    If you are trying to connect across different home networks, visit the How to Set Up a Multiplayer Game from Home Guide to understand how to host a game that players on other networks will be able to join.  Although the Multiplayer experience was designed and optimized for classroom use where all players are on the same network, Multiplayer across different internet connections is possible by making some changes to your home network configuration.
