Difference between Australian and Indian education system

The author of this blog was invited to address Indian students commencing higher education at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. The speech was part of a pre-departure session hosted by Griffith University at Courtyard by Marriott, Ahmedabad, Gujarat on 30/Jan/2019.
The speech covered wide range of subjects but one topic that needs to be briefly summarised here is the difference between Indian and Australian (western) education system. Indian education system clearly sets out the knowledge that students need to learn and assesses whether student has acquired that knowledge or not. Western education system at times sets student on discovery of knowledge through research in addition to traditional education system where student acquires knowledge from textbooks and classrooms.
The author also wants to thank Griffith University for felicitating the beautiful memento pictured below.

Recomendation To To Allow Embedding Content On Other Webpages.

Blog Post No– 002 in ‘Missing Features’ SeriesAt the time of writing this post sifting through the support content on did not show information to embed the user posts from Belacam to other websites and webpages.

When a main stream media (MSM) outlet embeds a social media post in the digital edition of an article or a news story then the chances of the post becoming viral increases. An embedded post going viral also increases chances of more internet traffic to; 1) social media website where the embedded post is published, 2) the user's social media page who posted the content, and 3) the social media post.

If Belacam considers more internet traffic generated towards their website as a positive success indicator (like other social media websites) then they should allow the easy embedding of their users' posts on other websites.
