This is my first time enrol to the online degree programme and my first time to encounter this software (Turnitin). At first, I'm was a bit nervous and make my first mistake by posting the wrong seminar 1 DQ in the wrong (Turnitin) link. Fortunately I manage to contact the instructor to do the explanation and able to complete my first assignment submission meaningfully. I learned that (Turnitin) was used by most of the university and college to detect plagiarism and I was surprised to found out the capabilities of the software to address the plagiarism and deliver feedback to the user. Based on my interpretation on the originality report generated from (Turnitin). I can understand that the higher the percentage mean that the higher similarity content of the assignment submitted through (Turnitin) link. Academic integrity scenario feedback
