Giga and his team can be seen as pioneers in their region as one of the first universities to implement Turnitin in Georgia. He took the lead in training both teachers and students, writing training guidelines and providing a platform for students to ask questions, further expanding the usage of Turnitin to include online grading. Preliminary results are so promising that other universities in Georgia have reached out to him for advice in implementing themselves.
