Carcraft is a tool for eveyone in the VET sector:
Carcraft takes place in the blockey and squarey world of Minecraft, an already existing and popular game. Minecraft is a virtual open world video game where players can dig, mine, build, craft and enchant things among other things. The game is typically described as a “sandbox game” because players can interact with their own worlds and experiences where the possibilities are truly limitless. Players can also modify the game to create new gameplay mechanics, items, and assets.
Minecraft has a huge vibrant community of amateur creators improving it on a daily basis!
Carcraft takes advantage of the Education edition of Minecraft designed specifically for use in educational establishments. This version includes the Classroom Mode, which can be used to access a range of features especially designed to interact with students while hosting a multiplayer game by managing settings from a central user interface.
