New Tool for Blackboard: You Can Count On It

Mon, 18 Jun, 2012    add-onblogdiscussionsfirefoxjournalsmozillawikisword count

Sometimes giving a word count requirement makes it easier for students to understand the expectations that a faculty member has for them for Discussions, Wikis, Journals, and Blogs. The issue is how to get the word count once the assignment is complete.

Question: How do you find the word count for assignments? A: Copy and paste into Word. Highlight all the text. Click Review tab. Click Word Count. B: Just eye it. C: Use the new add-on tool for Mozilla Firefox.

Answer: Although each of the options are feasible, the one that creates the least amount of work and allows for the greatest accuracy is option C.

Click the following link to download the Mozilla Firefox add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/Word-Counter-Bb
