YouTube video players and audio players can now be embedded in any instance of Sakai’s rich-text editor (CKEditor) without the use of Adobe Flash. The CKEditor is embedded within many Sakai tools including Forums, Mailtool, Assignments, Lessons, etc. The image below highlights where in the CKEditor to find the two new buttons: YouTube and Audio Player.
