Simulink Onramp works with MATLAB R2018b and later. If you do not have MATLAB installed, download it here:
Note: Below installation instructions only apply to release R2018b. From MATLAB R2019a and onward, Simulink Onramp is included in your MATLAB/Simulink installation. To open Simulink Onramp, on the Simulink Start Page, you can select the "Simulink Onramp" button under Learn.
Installing Simulink Onramp - Method 1: Add-on Explorer
The simplest way to install Simulink Onramp in MATLAB R2018b is from the Add-on Explorer:
To start, click on Get Add-Ons from the MATLAB Toolstrip:
In the Add-on Manager, search for Simulink Onramp:
click the Add button:
Installing Simulink Onramp - Method 2: MATLAB File Exchange
Download Simulink Onramp as a Toolbox:
In MATLAB, go to the directory where you downloaded the Toolbox. In the MATLAB Current Folder window, right-click on the toolbox and select Install.
Launching Simulink Onramp
To launch Simulink Onramp, click on the Simulink icon in the Home tab of the MATLAB Toolstrip to launch the Simulink Start Page.
In the Start Page, you will see a link to launch Simulink Onramp on the bottom left corner:

First you need to download R2018a.
You might possibly have access to it by using the link
If you do then (though really that is for the current release and the steps are a bit different now.)

I have the simulink onramp on the start page. However, when I open it, it showed that 'Oops. We do not appear to have that course.Browse other courses'. What's wrong with it? I'm a student and I have Matlab 2018b. Please help me!

Does this work in Matlab Online R2018b?
If so, how?

I can install the Onramp toolbox and see it in the Simulink Start Page, but when I click to launch it, it shortly shows "Busy" and then comes back with the error "No directories were removed" (see screenshot).
This is hard to debug as it doesn't say where it wants to "remove directories" and why it can't do so.
Any hint on where I have to look at?
Thanks in advance!

SImulink Onramp was created for R2018b. You will probably need to upgrade if you want to use it.

MATLAB Online does not support Simulink. You must run MATLAB/Simulink on your desktop PC or notebook.
