online code editor does not allow for students to share
This is regarding the Coding with Minecraft units.
In the Student workbook for Unit 2, there is a link that takes the user to a browser version of MakeCode editor.
In the NEW UPDATED SLIDES for the same lesson, it references using a SHARE BUTTON to be able to get a URL for their project and upload it to the Code builder/makecode in Minecraft.
The problem is that there is NO SHARE BUTTON PRESENT.
Students can save their projects as MKCD files and then upload into minecraft, but the instructional slides your team recently updated this summer are not matching what is happening in the provided links/tutorials.
I have only tried Unit 2, but I know this was an issue with all the other units in Coding with Minecraft before your team did the updates to the teaching materials.
Please advise as to what students should be doing since they cannot SHARE their links.
Also, Have a memeber of your team PHYSICALLY FOLLOW AND DO the lessons you publish as you have them written. It's incredibly frustrating to run into issues like these in newly updated materials.
Here is the link on your minecraft website of the lesson I am talking about:
Here is the link to the tutorial, as referenced in the student workbook for this lesson:
Here is the link to YOUR published lesson slides. Go to slide #15 through 19 to see what you have published)
Hi! Frank Claikens is correct! The share button doesn't appear until completing the tutorial and is now found at the top menu. We appreciate your feedback and are always looking to improve the user experience. The most recent MakeCode update impacted our content, and we are reviewing instructional support materials to reflect the update and see where we can provide better clarity around this specific function you have brought up. Thanks!!
The sharing option becomes available when you finish the tutorial.
You can test this even without completing the task: click on the 'next'-button on the bottom of the left column 8 times, Then click on the 'done'-button...
Now there is the sharing-option in the top menu.2
It is a bit baffling until you get used to the tutorials. They kind of grab control a bit. It makes sense, when you think that they are making sure you are headed in the right direction. The share button appears at the end, as described above. Also, you cannot go create a new project unless you at least scroll through to the end of the tutorial. But the tutorials are extremely helpful. Please always feel free to reach out, and let us know if you have more questions.0
