TubeChop – cut up your videos to size

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.
