Multimedia resources: Creating clips

Finding and using Multimedia for teaching and learning


You may wish to use a small segment of a full length streamed video recording for teaching or learning purposes. 

Some databases allow you to create clips from full length videos that supply you with a link that you can include or embed into external locations such as Moodle, reading lists, webpages or email.
