You can now access Oxford University Press textbooks for free online

Oxford University Press is providing free access to over 200 digital textbooks to aid teaching and learning at home during COVID-19. This material covers primary and secondary school, O-Level, A-Level, Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC), and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).

Thanks to Oxford University Press, teachers, students, and parents can utilise these resources while schools are closed around the world. You can find a full list of resources, including literature books, picture books, and dictionaries on the official portal.

This free access is a temporary measure to aid distance learning; the textbooks are only available online until Sept. 30, 2020. Teachers and parents may contact their local Oxford Educational Consultant for more information. Before that, here’s a breakdown of what’s available for free online.
