This article is designed to answer your questions about MinecraftEdu, which is a different product than Microsoft: Education Edition and covers:
Working with the MinecraftEdu creators Joel Levin and Santeri Koivisto, we started with all the learnings from the MinecraftEdu mod, and built its key features into Minecraft: Education Edition. Minecraft: Education Edition adds features including login and personalization, the student portfolio feature, and the ability to save student progress.
As of April 2016, MinecraftEdu is no longer for sale. Customers that have already purchased Minecraft EDU licenses may continue to use MinecraftEdu. Please note that MinecraftEdu no longer receives new updates from TeacherGaming, and Microsoft will not be supporting MinecraftEdu or providing downloads of the software.
