La extensión del uso de Internet ha proporcionado a los estudiantes la posibilidad de acceder a fuentes de información no disponibles en el pasado. Este hecho ha incrementado el uso inadecuado de la información obtenida. En este trabajo analizamos la experiencia de uso de una licencia del sistema antiplagio Turnitin. En total fueron recopilados 350 trabajos entregados para su análisis. Del mismo pudimos percibir un efecto aprendizaje entre entrega y entrega. Las principales conclusiones aportadas tienen un efecto positivo. Así, hemos comprobado como el alumno toma conciencia de la existencia de Turnitin, lo que ha aumentado su dedicación al trabajo escrito, al mismo tiempo que ha disminuido las sospechas sobre las entregas del resto de estudiantes, dando valor adicional al trabajo entregado, reforzando la relación con el profesor y reforzando su autoridad. La evaluación del uso de Turnitin también ha mostrado ciertos aspectos negativos: la aparición de una sensación de rechazo por la percepción de un control excesivo, la adaptación del trabajo escrito a los requisitos de Turnitin y el vacío legal que existe en la distribución de los trabajos de los estudiantes. The widespread use of the Internet has given university students access to information resources on a level never experienced in the past. The bad news is that this issue increased the inappropriate use of those resources. In this paper we discuss the experience of using the Turnitin anti-plagiarism license. In total, 358 assignments were analyzed. We partly noticed a learning effect among students between assignment deliveries. The main conclusions drawn from the use of Turnitin anti-plagiarism license are positive and we have seen how students have become aware of the existence of this tool in the evaluation process, which in turn has led to greater attention and dedication to the writing process and to the development of ideas and concepts. It has also allowed to diminish suspicions about the authenticity of the work handed by the students, valuing the real effort, improving their relationship with the teacher reinforcing the authority of the latter. The incorporation of the license can also lead to some negative aspects: The generation of a feeling of rejection by the student by the exaggerated perception of control, the adaptation of written work to Turnitin requirements and the legal vacuum surrounding the dissemination of student work.
