I dont have a real problem with teachers presenting the work of others. If
that were the case no university would be able to teach everything they
need to.. I think that they should give credit where credit is due, but
if the information is in the public domain (or they bought a book from
someone as reference, and its a 'text book' type deal) ...
Why should I not be able to use cisco documentation (http://www.cisco.com)
to teach how to make a cisco more secure, when its unreasonable to assume
that I would be able to figure out how to configure a cisco and secure it
without any work from someone else?
I'd be more wary of the teachers that claim that everything is their own
work, and they rely on no one else to learn stuff.. They are prolly not
quite as good as someone who admits that they actually use resources made
available by others..
