Description field too small

      Go into a course and add (or edit) and activity. After loading, the editor box should be large enough for a reasonable amount of simple editing.

      Note - this may have to be done with a cleared browser, as TinyMCE does 'remember' if you resized the box in the pase.

      Description

      The default description field size for activities has become too small after the patch from MDL-38614. It is only about 1.5 lines tall (see screenshot), and to make matters worse, the collapsed version of the editor doesn't allow you to resize the edit area.

      While I understand the need point of MDL-38614, I feel this has gone so far as to hamper usability. Especially given the reduced size of the collapsed editor, it seems unnecessary to make the field that small.
