Minecraft Basics 101
Minecraft is a sandbox video game where players navigate a 3D computer generated world. It is open ended where players pursue a variety of goals such as exploration, building, combat, and survival. Originally created by the game programmer  Markus Persson, Minecraft was developed into an elaborate gameplay system by the Swedish company Mojang. Mojang was later acquired by Microsoft in 2014 which helped create new versions such as Minecraft: Education Edition (for students, teachers, and schools) and new extensions such as Microsoft Code Connection (to program Minecraft). This basic course introduces Minecraft fundamentals for the uninitiated and introduces concepts about Minecraft worlds and activities that can be undertaken in the game. This course does not teach any modding but serves as a pre-requisite to the Minecraft Modding with MakeCode course.

What you need to know

Absolutely no prior programming experience required! Students are expected to only know how to use a computer, e.g., to click, to type, to use a mouse, and to follow along our videos.

What you will learn

After completing this course, you would have mastered:
  • Minecraft modes: Creative and Survival
  • Initializing your world
