The Witney Shuttle is good value for people from West Oxfordshire taking long holidays where the cost of airport parking would exceed the cost of the bus fare. It's not an option for Oxford itself.

The train option of using the Heathrow express etc is also a lot more expensive - and no quicker than the bus, which is, in my opinion, the only sensible public transport option.

Buses to Oxford are frequent from Terminal 5 and Central Bus Station. It is much faster than going back into London and taking a train. The bus station is also in the center of Oxford as opposed to the train station which is located further from the center.

The annoying thing about going by train all the way is that the Paddington to Oxford trains pass about 2 miles to the north of Heathrow but there are no stops for them there. So after heading 13 miles or so into London Paddington for the Oxford train, about 45 minutes after leaving Heathrow you will passing the airport once more.

A less mileage intensive alternative is to take bus X25 from Heathrow to Reading and pick up the Oxford train there, but really you might just as well go all the way by bus having gone that far.
