This might depend on how man students we are talking about. But you have a couple of choices.
- Invite everyone into you party, it holds 16 players. Enter Creative via the "create" menu. This is your private party in the Hub. Then you can enter the island code and have everyone enter to start.
- You need a Support A Creator code (SAC) to publish your island. This would allow you to get an island code and have all your students enter that island code from the Creative menu (its the selecon on the far left to enter an island code)
A lot of this depends on how the island is set up and how the teams designed. How many players at one time? How many teams? All maps now have the ability to include up to 50 players matchmaking. For the SAC code, that you need for matchmaking, i can reach out to our Dev relations team and see about getting you a code if you need it. For creative builders, you dont need the normal 1000 follower on social media.
