Abstract: The technology application for English as a Foreign Language in tertiary education can be a double-edged sword.

The findings showed that while the students viewed plagiarism negatively, they deemed Turniti n positively to encourage academic honesty. This research demonstrates that Turnitin is likely to promote positive behaviour in writing in academic context. (More)
