T3 (Thursday Tech Tips): Quick and Easy YouTube Clips

Have you ever needed to show only a short segment of a YouTube video in a class or a presentation? TubeChop, a free website requiring no registration, makes quick work of selecting a portion of a video and creating a new link to your segment that now has its own dedicated webpage (with a link back to the original video). All you need to get started is the URL of the YouTube video. You can watch the original video on TubeChop and select your starting and ending points on the fly or you can enter in the time stamp of the clip if you already know it. Once you create the clip you can view it at the new URL, embed it on another page, or share it through email, Facebook, and Twitter.
