Khan Exercises for WordPress

Description

This Khan Exercises for WordPress plugin lets you host Khan Academy exercises in your WordPress blog. Khan Exercises make learning complex subjects fun and they are free to everyone! However, the framework is very complex; it’s difficult to embed its exercises into another web site. We made framework changes, which make it easier to embed the exercises and collect the exercise results right in your WordPress blog.

Who developed this plugin and why?

This plugin was developed by Pavel Simakov and uses a fork of Khan Academy Exercises Framework. Pavel currently works at Google as a lead engineer on Google Course Builder and other educational initiatives. He is also a founder of an adaptive education site itestyou.com. Engaging interactive activities are fundamental to effective learning. Khan Academy Exercises are great! Now it’s also easy to create and use them everywhere on the Web.
