Ratings and Reviews
Make this edition more available
Students are not the only ones who would be interested in using this edition of Minecraft. I would be interested in obtaining a reasonably priced individual license of this software, but unfortunately none is available. I am not a student or affiliated with any school.
In your initial reply to my post you said that the student edition is good for students and that the regular edition is good for other people. I have the regular edition. Is there a way to experiment with coding in the regular edition? What about exploring the chemistry options. Individuals should have the freedom to choose which version they want to use. As long a Microsoft and Mojang receive sustainable profits, why should they object to this?
Developer Response ,
Thanks for posting. The game is designed for students. The consumer edition of Minecraft would be a good option.
Really? Why do I have to have an account EVERY SINGLE TIME I WANNA PLAY?! Some people wanna play Minecraft, but don’t wanna spend $7 on a game! Yes, I get that many schools have shared devices, but I’m pretty sure that you can make it to where there is a little icon in the top right corner so people can press it, press sign out, and sign in to their account. Tbh, at first I was like “why does this have 3 Stars, it’s probably just Minecraft with a different texture!” But no, I can see why it has 3 Stars... also if u wanna make ur game BETTER then either, make Minecraft(the original) free, or make the icon in the corner, like I suggested. Anyways, I don’t suggest it, so yeah.

Thanks for the feedback.
Can you please respond mojang
Ok so You might think that I dislike the game but I wouldn’t know because of the account I’m able to do the first sign in but why do I have to make a second account after I just typed in the first account so what if you made it so you only typed in your first account and then it would be like normal Minecraft but you have to type in the account every single time you want to play and every time you want to play you have to verify if your playing at school or not because Education Edition is a very fun game but a lot of people just want to teach Thea selves especially home school kids

HI there, yes you have to login to the game each time you wish to play. This is because many schools have shared devices.
