Information for Students

Welcome to Oxford Learning Link, your hub for digital learning tools and resources to help you get the most of your Oxford University Press text.

Getting Started for Students

Many of our texts offer several options for accessing and assigning resources. To get started, consult your syllabus and choose the option that best describes how you will use the resources for your text:

Get Started with Oxford Learning Link Direct

Accessing your text’s content in your school’s learning management system (LMS) requires a simple, one-time registration process.

  1. Log in to your institution’s LMS and access your course.
  2. Access an Oxford resource. These resources will look a lot like the other resources in your course; however, the first time you encounter one that’s protected you’ll be asked to Activate your Access.
  3. Select the method by which you wish to activate your access:
    • If you obtained an access code with your text or at your bookstore, select “Redeem an access code”
    • If you do not have a code and wish to purchase access directly, select “Purchase access with a Credit Card”
    • If you are not ready to redeem a code or make a purchase, you may select “Begin a free trial”. This will allow you full access to your Oxford course material for the duration of the trial length specified on the screen. After the completion of the trial period, you will be prompted to redeem an access code or purchase access in order to continue accessing protected content.
  4. Return to your course in your institution’s LMS; then, try opening the same resource that had been locked before. The resource should no longer be locked, indicating that your Oxford content is ready to use.

Get Started with Oxford Learning Cloud

Follow these steps to activate your access to the Oxford materials in your Oxford Learning Cloud course:

  1. Visit the unique URL for your Learning Cloud course provided by your instructor. For example: https://oup.instructure.com/enroll/XXXXXX.
  2. If you already have an OUP Instructure account, you can log in with your existing credentials. If you are new to Oxford Learning Cloud, create an account.
  3. Once you log in, you’re in the course. However, the first time you encounter ‘locked’ content, you’ll be prompted to activate your access.
  4. Select the method by which you wish to activate your access:
    • If you obtained an access code with your text or at your bookstore, select “Redeem an access code”
    • If you do not have a code and wish to purchase access directly, select “Purchase access with a Credit Card”
    • If you are not ready to redeem a code or make a purchase, you may select “Begin a free trial”. This will allow you full access to your Oxford course material for the duration of the trial length specified on the screen. After the completion of the trial period, you will be prompted to redeem an access code or purchase access in order to continue accessing protected content.
  5. After activating your access to locked content, you can now use Learning Cloud.
