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.
