Epic Games has launched a "Fortnite Creative for Minecraft Educators" video series to show the similarities and differences between the two through hands-on learning. From learning how to set up a scoring system to creating a chest brimming with shiny loot, the courses aimed at interested Minecraft Educators will smooth out their transition to Fortnite Creative.

This is basically Epic Games' way of saying "jump ship and come over to Fortnite Creative to make your dope ideas," which is tempting because they have thousands of ready-to-use assets for creating islands. That list ranges from premade buildings, furniture props, structural assets like walls and doors, customizable devices, and player consumables. There's a lot of flexibility to get started right away. In Minecraft, everything is built block by block, stretching the level of creativity possible with each step, but these structures aren't adjustable once set in stone.

But Fortnite Creative comes out on top for its coding and customization. It supports the creation/design of scripted experiences through special devices and mechanics without custom code. Minecraft creators must use an item to transmit input and output signals between objects combined with coding to make everything work as planned. It's clear from their announcement that Epic Games focuses on nailing the streamlined nature of creating digital worlds. That could be great for someone looking to jump in right away, bringing them to the hands-on learning courses.

There's the standard introduction video to set the groundwork for Fornite Creative and why it's different from Minecraft, but later in the list, they explore player movement, setting up in-game rules, and implementing tools and weapons. What's surprising is how quick and efficient these videos are. The longest one goes to 11 minutes, but all of them are below that. Someone itching to create an island today could pick up these clips and literally make something special within an hour.

Are making custom worlds your type of thing? Let us know below!
