ComputerCraftEdu: Learn Programming in Minecraft!
TeacherGaming (team behind MinecraftEdu) and Dan200 (creator of ComputerCraft) bring you a clever new way to learn programming and computational thinking in Minecraft. Players start with a tile-based interface to learn the fundamentals of programming in a fun, accessible environment. From there, you have to find ways to use turtles to automate and extend your usual Minecraft doings (Mining, building, etc). Whether you are completely new to programming or you already have some experience, ComputerCraftEdu is an easy and fun way to learn important real world skills and get creative on a whole new level. Awesome new robot servants AND useful real-life skills? It's like sorcery, but with programming!
...okay, programming isn't literally sorcery, but still.
No. The idea behind ComputerCraftEdu is to give you an easy start to understanding the structures and logic behind programming. You start by controlling your robot turtle with a remote by giving simple one-step commands. You’ll start actual programming by dragging and dropping commands to a grid area and gradually move to placing those blocks by just using the keyboard and finally to write the actual code with just text.
Like regular ComputerCraft, ComputerCraftEdu is Forge-based on Minecraft 1.7.10, and therefore requires Forge to work. A 1.8 version is coming in the future, though!
