Minecraft is go!

We have started a minecraft group this term and now have a server up and running! Our first task is to create a Minecraft map of our school that people can wander around to help orientate new students. We have a blank world and have made a start but how do I save the world and share it? (Seed it?) Any suggestions welcome!

Also has anyone used the Wonderful World of Humanities? Is it worth downloading and exploring?

    Ive used the humanities world.  It is incredible and well worth a look. The only down side is that if you do not have the EDU version you cant access the information stored on the signs.  There is a lot of info there about the individual areas which is great, but still worth a look around.  

    Would you post info about setting up a server.  I would be interested in doing that.

    Hi Tracy,

    I had our tech guy set up part of our school server as a Minecraft Server so that it can be accessed (eventually) out of school. I am not sure of the technical part but he did it pretty quick so can't be to hard. Sorry I can't be more helpful... You could use your teacher computer but it would mean the "world" would only be live when your computer is on.

    Sounds great!  I have just written a programme called Mind Craft to teach learning strategies base don Mine Craft.  If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.

    What sort of Programme Melanie? Is it for maths strategies? Do you have a "world" others could adventure in?

    Is anyone able to help with how to set up a minecraft server through school server? Do you need to have mine craft edu licenses?
