How do I set up the Instructor Plagiarism + AI Scan Tool in Moodle? - LTI Version 1.3

The Instructor Plagiarism + AI Scan Tool enables instructors to scan files or copy and pasted content for plagiarism outside of an assignment. The tool is helpful for late submissions, discussion board posts, and your own class materials.
