We have spent a lot of time on our blog talking about how valuable YouTube can be in higher education—from searching YouTube EDU for educational videos from universities and educational institutions all over the world to having students create and post their own original videos to YouTube. YouTube is a great way to integrate education with the power of social media to reach audiences all over the world. Today, we are sharing a free web-based tool that will increase the functionality of YouTube.
It’s called TubeChop and it gives users the ability to trim any YouTube video. You can now select a specific clip from a YouTube video and share it in the same ways you would with original YouTube videos.
Simply search for your YouTube video, choose to Chop It, and drag the bars to capture the portion of the video you want to keep. Then click Chop It, and you will be provided with a link, an embed code, and other sharing options (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
TubeChop is just one of the many apps and free web tools that integrate with YouTube, increasing its functionality for you! Be sure to follow our blog for more new and free web-based tools!
