Covid-19: A message to our customers
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is posing huge challenges for teachers, researchers and learners. At Cambridge University Press we are committed to supporting you at this difficult time.
We have made higher education textbooks in HTML format free to access online during the coronavirus outbreak to support universities and their students. More than 700 textbooks, published and currently available on Cambridge Core – our online home for academic books and journals – are available online to students through their university library regardless of whether they were previously purchased. We are also providing free access to a growing collection of research related to the coronavirus until the end of May. The Press plays a global role in education and research and shares its University’s mission to contribute to society through its work. Sharing that research can play an important role in tackling shared threats such as this. Articles in the collection are drawn from journals including Epidemiology & Infection; Prehospital and Disaster Medicine; Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, and from Animal Health Research Reviews, among others.
English Language Teaching
We have launched a campaign – Supporting Every Teacher - and in partnership with colleagues at Cambridge Assessment English, we are producing large amounts of free, online content for teachers and learners. Hosted on our World of Better Learning blog, this supports teachers whose schools have been closed with daily text, audio and video content focussed on different aspects of online teaching. We are making this content available to the maximum number of people possible and have also compiled available online content into free-to-use bundles for different user groups in support of online courses. We have also produced guides on how to use printed materials in a virtual classroom setting. Our Cambridge Exam Boosters series has also been digitised and made freely available. Support is also available from colleagues who are in touch with schools to provide help and guidance on moving to or using online and blended print and digital products.
We have made a range of resources, worksheets and videos free to teachers, students and parents around the world on our school closure support page – teaching and learning from home. Here you can access almost all of our digital material for free for the next three months as well as finding links to primary worksheets and a range of other useful resources. Our Brighter Thinking blog has tips and advice from teachers who have been affected and guidance for those facing or experiencing school closures. This support is being made as accessible as possible and we welcome feedback in these extraordinary circumstances to help further improve our offering. For the most up-to-date assessment information for schools please visit the relevant website pages for Cambridge Assessment International Education, OCR, AQA and the International Baccalaureate.
Rest assured that we are doing all we can to support you, with robust plans in place to maintain services to our global communities of teachers, learners, researchers and institutions. Our business continuity teams are meeting daily to assess the situation and we are working closely with our suppliers to continue with business as usual.
