If you are looking for a web tool that will help you to summarize what is on a website or on an article, here is Skim.it.
After signing up, Skim.it will hep you to get a 100 word of summary of the website. You simply copy and paste the link on the web tool and the tool creates the summary for you and pastes on your canvas. You can create different canvas to save your summaries to read them later or share them with others. You can also download the Chrome extension and use it on your browser.
I like this tool as it is very user friendly and a great way to skim websites for a better view. This tool can be suggested students to get an idea of a website before spending too much on if it is useful or not. Also great way to summarize articles online.
