Microsoft has announced that it will open minecraft’s rich educational content free of charge to millions of children around the world as a result of the new coronavirus outbreak. Xbox Head Phil Spencer announced on Xbox Wire that the company is opening a new category at Minecraft Marketplace to provide free educational content to parents and their children.
“We offer a selection of content, including working with NASA to explore the International Space Station, learn machine programming, visit Washington, D.C., find and create 3D models, learn about marine life, and more,” the press release read. The software starts downloading for free today and will continue until June 30, 2020. “
Another useful feature for children in the My World universe is Copilot. With The Copilot feature, new gamers can learn how to use two controllers to manipulate Minecraft or any other Xbox One game. Copilot is a very useful feature for children who need some help to play video games, or for special controller configurations.
