How to go about developing app using PHP being employed in wordpress?

I wanna develop - something like vocabulary builder - where words and related attributes are stored along with difficulty levels - as per standard (students for example) and then build few innovative games around it - where students may further be rewarded with some reward points similar to one used here in these forums.

Do I need to develop plugin for this? or there is some other way out also? (Probably which one is simpler)

    That sounds much more like it would be a custom programming solution rather than a WordPress plugin.

    Are you wanting to develop this yourself (as in write the code) or develop the product by having someone else write the code?

    Both options are outside the scope of what WPMUdev offers.

    There are already quite a few good vocab games and plugins over at, i have already used them on a few sites for language courses. However for something more serious you should look at something like moodle with its very powerful quiz modules.

    Thanks phillcoxon

    Thanks Tom.

    I did searched on this site but couldn't find similar plugins. Can you name any one of them,,,or specific link.

    Anyways, I am also interested in trying my hands on few things.

    I am familiar with php and all but not with designing plugins....or developing pages in php and then invoking them in wordpress through some iframe plugin or similar stuff.

    do advise.

    Hi Phillcoxon

    Are you wanting to develop this yourself (as in write the code) or develop the product by having someone else write the code?

    Yeah, sort of , wanna dirty my hands a little bit.

    I am good with coding, but probably here it is lil different. No experience with plugins..but interested. May be few things for the sake of trying...

    any help?
