Khan Academy has created a generic framework for building exercises. This framework, together with the exercises themselves, can be used completely independently of the Khan Academy application.
The framework exists in two components:
- An HTML markup for specifying exercises.
- A jQuery plugin for generating a usable, interactive, exercise from the HTML markup.
Using the Framework Locally
You need to serve the files from some sort of a server. You can't just open the files directly in a browser. For example:
cd khan-exercises python -m SimpleHTTPServer # or python3 -m http.server
Now if you open your browser to
http://127.0.0.1:8000/) you should see the contents of the
khan-exercises directory. Navigate to the
exercises subfolder, and an HTML file under there to see an exercise.
The process for writing exercises is rather well documented. More information about this process can be found in the Khan Exercises wiki. Specifically:
