Other enhancements to the VTBE include improved mashup tools  and multimedia options: faculty and students can embed a variety of video or audio files or can use the new Video Everywhere function to create new video files using a webcam.  Finally the VTBE includes a brand new WIRIS Math Editor that supports both MathML and LaTex.
