What is Word count?

Word count is a plugin for the Atto editor which, when iadded by the administrator to the toolbar config box in Site administration > Plugins >Text editors > Atto HTML editor >Toolbar settings, displays an icon # in the Atto editor.

How does it work?

When students type text into the Atto editor, for example in an forum post or an assignment, they can click the icon and a pop up will display, showing them how many words and letters they have already produced. This can be helpful when they need to type a certain number of words for an essay.
