You can find information about anything on YouTube these days and its a wonderful source of videos for teaching and learning. Sometimes, however, you wish that you could show just a section of a video which is relevant to the topic you are covering and discard the rest of it.
TubeChop is a free online service which allows you to do this. You can even embed the cut down video into PowerPoint, it will also give you an ’embed code’, so placing it into a blog, VLE or webpage is really easy as well.
First find your video using the search box
A list of relevant videos is displayed.
Select a video and it is displayed as normal.
Move the sliders on the left and right of the bottom bar until you have the clip you want. You then click on the ‘chop it’ button.
The shortened video is displayed along with the ’embed code’ (showing at the top right) and a link URL, followed by details of the ‘chop’ you applied to the video.
The video embed code can then be added to a Moodle as in the example above.
