TO STRENGTHEN its remote learning system and academic integrity practices, the Visayas State University partnered with Turnitin, an Internet-based plagiarism detection system.

Turnitin’s Feedback Studio checks for text similarity, provides writing tips and grammar guidance and helps instructors streamline workflows and give feedback on writing assignments.

Under the collaboration, Turnitin will integrate Feedback Studio into daily classrooms operations.

It will also help uphold integrity in assessments and assignments, as well as provide performance data to inform pedagogy.

“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,” VSU President Edgardo Tulin said.

“We are proud to be enhancing the learning experience and interactions between professors and students through our partnership with Turnitin,” he added.

The partnership comes after a series of consultation meetings with VSU administrators, deans, department heads and faculty members.

“We are committed to empowering higher education institutions like the Visayas State University in their efforts to promote original thinking, academic integrity, and fairness,” Hea Jack Brazel, Business Partnerships-Southeast Asia Turnitin, said.

“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” he added.
