How to Share a Portion of a YouTube Video

Over the years I have used videos to recap a lesson, to introduce a new concept, and to spark discussion amongst my students. When sharing videos with students I will often share just a portion of it. Usually, this means that I have them skip the first twenty or thirty seconds that has intro or pre-roll material. And occasionally there are longer videos that I my students to skip to the middle before starting to watch the balance of the video. Here are three good ways to share a portion of a video with your students.

YouTube's sharing menu includes an option to have a video start at a specified time. Take a look at my screenshot below to see where to find that option.

TubeChop is a good tool for clipping and sharing a portion of a YouTube video. Watch my video below to see how it works.

EDPuzzle offers more than just clipping and sharing a portion of a video. It is a complete system for cropping videos and adding quiz questions to them. Watch my videos below to learn how to use EDPuzzle.
