TEQSA wins against cheating website

The Federal Court has ordered internet service providers to block access to an academic cheating website which it found advertised to students in Australia

Not that any of the ISPs argued against blocking “assignmenthelpforyou.”

It’s the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency’s first use of new powers legislated this year and TEQSA had to use them, if only to demonstrate it is on the case. But it won’t be the last for as long students can be conned into paying essay mills and assignment forges – which will be forever.  And while international students are studying in home countries where their ISPs may well neither know nor care what the Federal Court rules.
