THE VISAYAS State University partnered with Turnitin, a global education technology provider, to strengthen remote learning and academic integrity practices.

The partnership was a result of a series of consultations and meetings among deans, faculty and department heads in their search for a solution that will help uphold integrity in assessments and assignments.

The solution had to be reliable and flexible to withstand the challenges of a constantly shifting classroom modalities — in-person, remote, and hybrid.

The university integrated Turnitin’s Feedback Studio into its daily classroom operations. The system provides writing tips and grammar guidance, and helps instructors streamline workflows and easily give quality, consistent feedback on writing assignments.

The tool helps classrooms uphold academic integrity and promote authentic learning and original thinking. Feedback Studio is one of the few education technologies that has been proven to improve learning outcomes.

Over 800 educators and 18,000 students are benefitting from the Turnitin Feedback Studio integration with VSU E-learning.

“We are committed to empowering higher education institutions like the Visayas State University in their efforts to promote original thinking, academic integrity, and fairness. With VSU, we strive to ensure that academic standards are consistent across physical and virtual classrooms, support professors in delivering high-quality education, and improve learning outcomes” said Jack Brazel, Turnitin Head of Business Partnerships, Southeast Asia.

“Remote learning will have a permanent place in higher education. This partnership furthers the university’s academic standards and strengthens how we conduct remote learning. We are proud to be enhancing the learning experience and interactions between professors and students through our partnership with Turnitin,” said VSU President Dr. Edgardo Tulin.
