"Something wey she suppose copy and paste for quillbot to paraphrase.. then maybe to paraphraser.io AI is going to be the end of human critical thinking ability tho."

Chinonso_ stated:

"Lol. When you use chatgpt for essays, you have to still humanize it and make it yours. It’s like copying someone’s name and matric number in a test/exam, the Lecturer would know you’re a cheat. There’s another website were after restructuring the essay, you can check to see if it still reads like its chatgpt generated."

_deagram reacted:

"ChatGpt leads to a lack of critical thinking. It shouldn’t be always your source of information especially as a student."

Nkonyeasoa noted:

"Chat GPT is an awesome tool, but it takes smart people to know how to work with it. A simple thing as asking chat GPT to generate your responses in a non-AI tone will take your article from 0 to 100. An intelligent person would use chat GPTs responses as a roadmap."

"How did the lecturer figure it out? Omo."

Thelope__' added:

"People aren't getting the way around this thing. If you want to use AI, go through the answer it gives and add some essence of human expression, give more context and fluidity of thoughts. If possible sef, rewrite everything. Use the AI-generated content as a draft."
