Microsoft and the new Minecraft: Education Edition

Minecraft: Education Edition
Things have changed now that Microsoft has acquired Minecraft. The educational edition has changed. I am working to help set things up and the process is a bit different.

Anyone out there using this new version?

This might be a big answer, but what are the major differences between the regular version and the education version?

Minecraft Education Edition:

  1. Forces users into Windows 10
  2. Teacher can download a classroom console that allows them to view the world and control certain aspects of the students and the environment.
  3. Cost is now $5 per student per year

Thank you! Have been struggling to get the classroom mode to work but working with IT on this.
