TEQSA and telcos block academic cheating sites

The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency has used powers under the Telecommunications Act to “disrupt access” to 40 sites

They are “some of the most highly visited commercial cheating services that are targeting students at Australian higher education institutions,” the agency states.

Good-o, but there are plenty more where they came from.

In June TEQSA reported it had advised HE providers of 2333 “suspected” cheating sites, including 579 “specifically targeting” students at Australian institutions.

The Federal Court gave the agency the authority to order ISPs to block cheaters last year (CMM October 11).
