The use of plagiarism detection software such as Turnitin or SafeAssign has become common in higher education. While frequently used to catch plagiarism, some institutions have used it as a learning tool to help students better understand plagiarism and the conventions of academic writing. In an international branch campus in the Middle East, a survey was given to undergraduate students, primarily second language students, on the use of Turnitin to help with their writing. Most participants found that the software helped them improve their paraphrasing skills, understand the use of citations, avoid plagiarism and, to a lesser extent, improve their language skills.

أصبح استخدام برنامج الكشف عن الانتحال مثل Turnitin أو SafeAssign شائعًا في التعلیم العالي.على الرغم من استخدامھا بشكل متكرر للقبض على الانتحال ، فقد استخدمته بعض المؤسسات كأداة تعلیمیة لمساعدة الطلاب على فھم الانتحال بشكل أفضل واتفاقیات الكتابة الأكادیمیة. في حرم فرع دولي في الشرق الأوسط ، تم إجراء دراسة استقصائیة لطلاب المرحلة الجامعیة ، و خاصة طلاب اللغة الثانیة ، حول استخدام Turnitin للمساعدة في كتاباتھم. وجد معظم المشاركین أن البرنامج ساعدھم على تحسین مھارات إعادة الصیاغة وفھم استخدام الاستشھادات وتجنب الانتحال وتحسین مھاراتھم اللغویة إلى حد أقل.
