TikTok is no longer merely a platform for dances, dog videos, and comedy; it’s also a fun and engaging way to gain new skills and educate yourself on almost any topic.
Last year, TikTok created a $50 million Creative Learning Fund, which “supports creators with the production of learning content, provides resources for learners, and introduces emerging teachers to the TikTok platform,” the company stated.
“The joy of learning on TikTok is that the content offers instructional tips and takeaways in a creative format, teaching something useful and inspiring users to seek out more information in a way that is fun and engaging,” said Bryan Thoensen, Head of Content Partnerships, in a press release. “Our community has been drawn to videos that highlight unique science experiments, useful life hacks, creative math tricks, easy DIY projects, and motivational messages and advice.”
With a billion monthly active users, TikTok’s content is as diverse as the people who love it. If you already spend hours a day getting sucked into the app, give some of these accounts a follow. You’ll level up your skills and learn something new from these talented female creators.
