I don't see where the problem is.....

Nor do I.
It seems some Chinese took exception to the fact that the professor chose one foreign language to convey his instructions when he might better have expressed them in two or three. But really, I feel the students reacted like crybabies.

Students must realize any qualification they may be awarded on completion of their course is awarded as testimony they have completed their course and examined on its content to some satisfactory standard based on personal effort and performance.

Cheating if allowed will only degrade the standard and thus the qualification in the future. Since those students passing out hold the same certificate, its worth in the eyes of their potential employers or the market will also degrade. In the end, they themselves will be losing out what could have been avoided by honest personal work.

The issue today is not just falling academic standards and weak students insisting on kid glove treatment. It is also the issue of expectations that education is just a piece of paper to be obtained through casual effort and any which way. Whatever the subject taken, the person holding the qualification has personal responsibility in the end to ensure s.he has commanded what was taught sufficiently to identify its use in work tasks ahead, if not to be able to think critically from having gone through the course and enough to at least have an idea how to progress to solving problems that will arise during work. Like work and life, education is not a game tool. It is also character-maturing. And the best education should not be expected to be easy. After all, paying hefty fees must mean hefty standards must mean hefty effort. Otherwise, one cheats oneself then company then the community. In the end, one's family.

The ANU lecturer needn't have apologized; at the least he cared enough to express his exasperation. And the students shouldn't have taken exception he had posted his warning to include the language. Even if statistically he was wrong, take it as a good reminder of what needs to be maintained.

Always remember the cycle of life - today's blessing can be tomorrow's sorrow - if not carefully remembered.
