Through an Alberta Education volume licensing agreement, your school district has access to Minecraft Education Edition products in your tenant. In this workshop we will discuss best practices and use cases for configuration and deployment of Minecraft education in Alberta classrooms.
As an admin you can choose to enable Minecraft: Education for students using M365 A3 or M365 A5. In the Microsoft Store for Education, under Settings & actions, you can select Allow access to Minecraft: Education Edition for users of Office 365 A3 or Office 365 A5.When this setting is selected, students in your tenant can use Minecraft: Education Edition even if they do not have a trial or a direct license assigned to them.
If you turn off this setting after students have been using Minecraft: Education Edition, they will have 25 more days to use Minecraft: Education Edition before they do not have access. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/education/windows/school-get-minecraft
Configure automatic subscription assignment
For Minecraft: Education Edition, you can use auto assign subscription to control whether or not you assign a subscription when a member of your organization signs in to the app. When auto assign subscription is on, people from your organization who don’t have a subscription will automatically get one when they sign in to Minecraft: Education Edition. When auto assign subscription is off, people from your organization will get the trial version when they sign in to Minecraft: Education Edition. This allows you to control which people use the trial version, and which people are assigned a full subscription. You can always reassign subscriptions, but planning ahead will reduce time spent managing apps and subscriptions. By default, automatic subscription assignment is turned on.
