How to Get Minecraft: Education Edition?


While you can try Minecraft: Education Edition for free, you’re only going to get 25 logins for teachers and 10 for students. You need to purchase a subscription for these limits to fall away. Additionally, you’re also required to have an Office 365 education account.


Once you have an Office 365 education account, you must purchase a license on the Microsoft Store of Education, from Authorized Education Partners, or resellers. After you get the licenses, you can start assigning them to any supported devices, such as iPads and computers.
