Multiple staff and tech from our school district in British Columbia, Canada have reached out to Microsoft about a particular hosting issue we are facing.
Districts are unable to allow hosting (teacher hosting a world from school), thereby preventing students (at home) from joining a teacher hosted world. There are security concerns opening that specific port would entail; teachers, who are required to work on-site, cannot host a world and have their at-home learners join.
What would it take to get this port changed to something more suitable? Can MEE please use a different port for the game so that it is more secure having students join from home to worlds hosted on school sites?
This conversation has been occurring with frustrated teachers in districts all over Canada who would love to use this great learning tool while hosting from school, and having our students join from home.
