Mixer has launched a new Education category for those who want to learn or want to share their knowledge with others, all from the comfort of your own computer.
Regardless of whether you’re learning remotely due to imposed lockdowns caused by the coronavirus pandemic, whether you’re full of knowledge that you want to share with the world, the Education category is designed to help those who want to learn.
Teachers can always use Mixer’s low latency streams to teach classes over the web, but you don’t have to be a teacher to take advantage of the new Education feature. As long as you’re educated on a topic, feel free to share what you know!
And hey, once you’re done learning, you can just hop right over to a gaming stream and relax.
You can find the Education hub on Mixer by following the link here. While it’s a little bare bones at the moment, we’re sure the knowledge will start rolling in soon enough.
It’s not just Mixer getting in on the remote learning action, though. Mojang recently released some of the company’s favourite lessons from Minecraft: Education Edition for free on the Minecraft Market, meaning anyone playing the Bedrock version of Minecraft can continue to keep their minds sharp.
Players can take part in interesting activities such as taking a tour of the International Space Station or exploring the inside of the human eyeball. They can also learn about fascinating topics like renewable energy, marine biology, Greek history, and more.

COVID-19, also known as coronavirus disease and previously known as 2019 novel coronavirus, is the disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). COVID-19 has officially been classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation.
At the time of publishing, there have been 372,755 cases and 16,231 deaths confirmed globally.
If you start displaying symptoms of COVID-19, the smartest thing to do is to isolate yourself from others and remain at home until you recover. If you start feeling worse, seek medical advice as soon as possible while keeping a safe distance from others.
Maintaining good hygiene practices, such as washing your hands regularly and covering your mouth when you cough and sneeze, can help to prevent the spread of most viruses and keep yourself and others safe from infection.
It’s important to note that SARS-CoV-2 does not discriminate in who it infects. Even if you’re lucky enough to be asymptomatic, you can still be a carrier, and you can still infect others. Be smart and stay at home.
For any concerns regarding COVID-19, you can visit the World Health Organization website to check on the status of the outbreak and educate yourself on related issues.
