TikTok celebrates Edu Content Building’s first anniversary in PH

 Over the past year, TikTok has emerged as a game-changer in online educational content, ushering a new age of short-form learning driven by its edu creators, hashtag challenges, and partnerships. In June of 2020, TikTok Philippines launched #TikTokU, which served as the first big umbrella for educational content on the platform. In the same year, #TikTokSkwela was launched as the new umbrella campaign for instructive content. Together, these campaigns have generated billions of video views and hundreds of thousands of educational posts on TikTok.

Amazing Filipino edu creators, onboarded and cultivated by TikTok during the past year, filled the platform with interesting and relevant instructive content. By freely sharing their professional knowledge and experiences through their TikTok videos, these edu creators helped others gain new information, learn new skills, and discover creative inspiration.

Awesome events are happening on the platform for this first-anniversary celebration!

Partnerships with media publishers and educational institutions were instrumental in boosting engagement and interest in these educational short-form videos as well. TikTok’s partnership with DOST-PCIEERD helped deliver Science and Technology knowledge to the public through campaigns such as #PinoyInnovator, #PinoyScience, and TechTalk Live. Moreover, its collaboration with the GMA Network program, AHA!, enabled TikTok to promote content featuring interesting and fun facts on TV, to reach even more Filipino viewers.
