Frequently Asked Questions

There are no prerequisites, but they must be used to using a computer.

Some aspects of game creation have been simplified to be accessible to beginners, but the principles and methods are those of professionals.

This course is for young people who love computers and are ready to take on technical challenges and use complex software.

ONLINE
  • The help of a parent is recommended for the installation of the software, before the first lesson.
  • Your child will likely need your help to install the software or your presence in one of our technical assistance sessions
  • You should be around during the first lesson to make sure that everything is working
  • Participate in parent-teacher meetings (at the end of each chapter, in the weekly class formula)
Free technical assistance sessions are available online.

Hardware – You need a computer that provides average performance. That would be a processor of at least 2 GHz. No Chromebook or tablets are allowed. To test your computer’s performance, download and run the Minecraft demo. If it runs smoothly, your computer is powerful enough.

Make sure you have enough bandwidth to allow video calls. Also, have a webcam, a microphone, headphones, and a mouse to facilitate your child’s experience.

 

Software – You need to buy, download, and install Minecraft Java Edition.

We welcome varied profiles, with success, thanks to flexible and personalized teaching tools.

There is no exam or performance pressure. Everyone can follow the course at their own pace, because most of the time, students do not all do the same thing at the same time. Our entire team is sensitive to neurodiversity:
Gifted
ADD/ADHD
High-level ASD
Difficulties in reading, writing and language
Lack of interest in school
Excessive video game practice

We ask parents to give practical information to the teacher, first by email (info@studioxp.online) then live, before a lesson.

Teachers are available 15 minutes before each class for private and confidential discussions.

The Customer Support team is at your disposal too.

Missed course modules cannot be resumed at another time or with another group.
The student can repeat the missed module by themself, thanks to the detailed course content available on our internet platform (Moodle). They can also get help from their teacher before the next module. Our teachers are available 15 minutes before each class to answer questions from students and their parents.

Students in shared custody can follow their course with both parents, on two different computers. All they have to do is install the software, save their work for each lesson and transfer the files either by email or using a USB key.
