Majong has tested Minecraft: Education Edition for an extended period as free trial which was began this summer. And It is still open for early access on its official site, which gives educators a chance to install and try the early version for FREE, and will last until the release of the full version on November 1, 2016. And then, the early accessed users can still use by purchasing with $5 per user, per year, or through a district-wide licensing model.

 

Being aimed at educators and schools, and by collecting feedback from the educator community, Majong rolled out the key capabilities in the full version (coming soon in November). And TopWinData will just quote the features from its official site:

Classroom Mode: A companion app for Minecraft: Education Edition that enables educators to manage world settings, communicate with students, give items and teleport students in the Minecraft world. It displays a map view of the Minecraft world, a list of all the students in the world, a set of world management settings and a chat window. There is even a Minecraft clock to show time of day in the world. Classroom Mode offers educators the ability to interact with students and manage settings from a central user interface.
