TikTok has become a great learning resource for everything, including useful lifehacks, unique science experiments, must-learn math tricks, quick and easy DIY (do-it-yourself) projects, and motivational messages and advice. Because the app is so easy to use, creators have found it to be a convenient place to share knowledge and skills with a wide audience. Through this platform, educators have found a way to liven up lessons, making them more engaging, brisk, and easy to digest. At the same time, TikTok’s short-form video format has made micro-learning appealing to users of all ages.
On the app, #LearnOnTikTok now has 76 billion views and counting, which shows exactly how much the community enjoys these videos that are informative, educational, and useful. At present, the #LearnOnTikTok community is made up of teachers, scientists, chefs, beekeepers, doctors, makeup artists, and other experts from varying fields.
Even health workers have taken to TikTok, as well as other social media platforms, to dispel misinformation about Covid-19 and the way people respond to the pandemic. As the vaccination roll-out continues across the world, the need to debunk misconceptions about Covid-19 grows in importance. This is what has prompted scientists and healthcare professionals to begin doing their part in educating others online.
TikTok is also doing what it can to further reduce the spread of misinformation, particularly in areas such as health and civic processes, through its new Know the Facts feature. This fact-checking feature aims to make users think twice before sharing any unverified video content on the app.
