TikTok, an extremely popular social platform for short videos is now banned across India. Though it was largely an entertainment platform but for the last few months the platform was also largely a medium of education under the global lockdown crisis. According to some data from 2019, about 10 million educational videos have been uploaded to TikTok, which have been viewed about 48 billion times.
Edweek.org, a popular educational blogging & article publishing site came up with a story in late 2019 about a teacher from Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland in the United States who was using TikTok as a part of his social study class. In fact, the teacher gave his students the option of making TikTok videos to demonstrate their understanding of the Missouri compromise of 1820, a key event in the lead-up to the American Civil War.
The story doesn’t end there. TikTok itself announced a new #LearnOnTikTok program to encourage educational videos in order to help facilitate learning during the COVID-19 lockdown. But every plan went in vain.
