Liberty University has created a Firefox add-on that gives you a word counter for Discussion Boards, Blogs, Journals, and Wikis inside Blackboard!
Going to Word and checking the word count then going back to the Bb Discussion Board was cumbersome and time consuming.
Liberty designed the tool to work on with Bb Learn systems. You can find the final beta version at
You may send your feedback directly to them at email@example.com so that they can address any issues. Also, if you like it, please leave a review for it on the install page!
Please share it with other Bb Learn users! Thanks Liberty for sharing with us!
