How do I reset/change my username or password?
To reset/change your password, please go to https://elevate.cambridge.org/elevate/common/forgotpassword.aspx.
Username cannot be changed.
If you are a teacher, you can reset a student's password or edit their information, as long as they are added to your class/institution within the 'Manage Users' section. Select the student, click the 'Edit user' icon.
You can edit first name, last name, email address and password but you cannot change username.
Can I use Cambridge Elevate offline?
Yes, there are IOS and Android tablet apps and desktop apps that enable you to download your books and associated resources. Please note you cannot add new books or manage users in the tablet or desktop apps but you may download existing books and resources to the app to use offline.
What is a book code?
A Book Code is used to add a book to your account. Each code can only be activated once and is for individual use.
If you have ordered a standalone digital title, you will have received your Book Code by email.
If you have purchased a print book with a digital version included, the Book Code is on the inside front cover of your book. You need to scratch off the foil cover to reveal the code.
If you are a new user, use your Book Code to register at https://elevate.cambridge.org.
How do I change the Font Type and Size?
There are two ways to change the font type and size to adapt your books to suit you.
Changing the font size across all titles
One is using the “Reader Settings” tab in the top navigation bar within Account settings.
This option allows you to change the font type for all the titles you have access to*. Font type changes are saved in your settings and will be kept even if you log out. Text size changes are not retained.
*Please note that it is not possible to change the text settings for some titles or sections of titles as these have been fixed to keep the appearance of the title.
Changing the font size of a specific title
The other way is using the Reader Settings option at the bottom of the page. This is also the only way to change font size in the Cambridge Reader app.
Changing the font here only changes it for the title you are currently viewing.
If you are using the Cambridge Reader app you will also need to press the Sync button at the bottom of the page.
How do I direct students to the right page?
You can direct students to specific bits of content by sharing links directly into your Cambridge Elevate titles.
To do this:
- Place a bookmark on the page
- Click on the bookmark to show the bookmark options
- Click Share this link
- Copy the URL
- Share the URL with your students
When a student follows the URL they will be directed to the location of the bookmark. Please be aware that students must have an active license for the Cambridge Elevate edition or Cambridge Elevate enhanced edition that the bookmark is located in.
How do I link my current School platform to Cambridge Elevate?
If you already use a VLE (e.g. Moodle) or email to share documents, information and work with your students, you can add links to external content to your Cambridge Elevate titles using the weblink annotation option and share the annotation with your students.
To link to external content:
