Meet the Word Counter for Blackboard® Developer

Why was Word Counter for Blackboard® created?

Most professors at Liberty University have to do a word count by copying text from Blackboard®, pasting it into Microsoft Word and then getting a word count. This skips the whole process and allows anyone to count the text while on the same page. This saves a large amount of time when grading 25 student's work per course with multiple courses.
