Can we get a word count tool for our courses?
Well, I don't know about a word count minimum requirement. I was just thinking put something in like the corner of the text box or in the toolbar where it shows how many words have been written. Yeah, I've had assignments where I had to have a 300 word minimum, and would have to copy and paste it into Word to figure out if I had enough. I think this is an easy script to make, but I don't want to assume anything since I have very little programming experience or ability.
