CUP provides free resources to support students during coronavirus outbreak

Cambridge University Press is providing free access to books, research and learning materials for teachers, students and researchers impacted by the coronavirus. 

Peter Phillips, Cambridge University Press' chief executive, said: "The pandemic is disrupting normal life almost everywhere across the globe. It is vital that we do what we can both to minimise the effects of that disruption on learning and research and also to get world-class research on this coronavirus into the hands of anyone who needs it." 

CUP's Academic division has made more than 700 higher education and reference works available to view online in HTML format to students, available through their university libraries.

Coronavirus research has also been placed onto a free online collection, with the editorial process adapted to ensure the information is online with 24 hours of the receipt of a manuscript. 

Teachers, pupils and parents are being given free access to schoolbooks, worksheets and instructional videos. 

The English Language Teaching publishing group has launched a global campaign called Supporting Every Teacher. It is working with colleagues in Cambridge Assessment English to deliver free, online content to support teachers and learners. Resources on offer include free digital access to Cambridge English Exam Boosters, which support those preparing for English language exams. The English Language Teaching Blog is also being updated with new content to support those learning to work remotely. 

Adiditionally, there is free access to educational resources for all ages. Including more than 100 secondary school text books, worksheet bundles for ages five to 11 and handwriting videos for those aged three to six. 

Secondary school resources can be accessed through Cambridge Elevate. This includes material covering Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge International AS & A Level as well as several UK GCSE and A Level texts. It is also providing free access to its interactive maths resources GCSE Mathematics Online in the UK and Cambridge Online Mathematics for Lower Secondary Checkpoint, IGCSE and A Level Mathematics, globally.
